YARDLEY, Pennsylvania – Global Traveler launches its annual online charity travel auction March 1. For the third consecutive year, the auction benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; 100 percent of the proceeds go toward the fight to end blood cancers.
Beginning March 1, bidders can log on to globaltravelerusa.com/auction and bid on a number of travel items, including business-class airline tickets, 5-star hotel stays and travel products. Prizes include two round-trip business-class tickets on Singapore Airlines, Turkish Airlines, South African Airways, Etihad Airways and Swiss International Air Lines. Hotel stays are available at The Address Downtown Dubai, The Kerry Hotel Pudong, The Peninsula Beverly Hills, The Rittenhouse Hotel and many more. Also up for grabs this year are 1,000,000 Priority Club Rewards points and two around-the-world business-class tickets courtesy of oneworld.
“Our annual auction is one of our most important projects each year,” said Francis X. Gallagher, Publisher and CEO, Global Traveler, “We work closely with LLS in the fight against cancer, and the outpouring of donations from our friends in the travel industry goes a long way in achieving our goal. We have an ambitious goal for 2013 of raising US$100,000 for LLS, and we urge travel lovers to bid often, as items usually go for under market value. A great cause and a great trip, all in one.”
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (lls.org) is dedicated to finding a cure for blood and lymph cancers. LLS awarded more than US$750 million in research funding for all blood cancers.
