This elegant Make-A-Wish® event raises funds to grant wishes for children ages 2 and 1/2 to 18 with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their human experience with hope, strength, and joy. All proceeds raised stay within Northeastern California and Northern Nevada chapter and make dreams a reality for our local wish children. Last year this fundraiser was able to grant 87 wishes to children.
This year, there will be more than 300 silent and super silent auction items and about 35 live auction items including the following:
BE A YACHT OWNER FOR A WHOLE WEEK: Go where you want, do what you want. It’s your boat. Ninety feet of luxury afloat in paradise. Navigate to the white sandy beaches with breathtaking views of the most incredible aquamarine and sapphire blue-green water you ever imagined of the Exumas chain in the Bahamas. Up to four couples will join the yacht in Nassau where you will be met by Captain Mark Capozucco and his crew. This crew of four will take care of your every need for the next seven days. Expertly prepared meals by the on-board chef to your liking, and by your schedule. Your schedule can include a ride across the Bahamas Banks to the Exumas where you will be able to swim with the sharks (if you choose), enjoy the unique swimming pigs off the Big Major Island, marvel at the large local Iguana population, and enjoy endless water activities including the clear “see through” kayaks, jet skis and other on board “toys”. Dining under the stars or in the comfort of the dining salon will be your choice. Maybe a little fishing or a visit or two to the small nearby marinas will fit the bill, or maybe you just have a little reading you want to catch up on. Curl up and enjoy, lay out and enjoy the sun. What the heck, do it all! It’s your adventure on Solstice 1!The Yacht is equipped with three comfortable staterooms – a smaller fourth stateroom – a certified Captain, CIA trained Chef and crew. Travel dates to be mutually agreed upon. (airfare to Nassau not included)
