Bidders have only two weeks left to bid on the Ultimate Casa Laguna Getaway. As part of our sponsorship and support of the Orange County Ride for Aids (OCRA), Casa Laguna is auctioning a fabulous Laguna Beach getaway for two. The getaway package includes two nights in our spacious ocean-view cottage, breakfast in bed (one morning), a sixty minute togetherness massage at Casa Laguna’s spa, our Devotion Package—including a bottle of sparkling wine, two souvenir flutes, chocolate covered fruit, and a dozen roses waiting in your room, a picnic lunch to enjoy on-property or at nearby Victoria Beach, a romantic dinner at French 75 restaurant (one night), a chauffeur-driven town car from Best Chauffeured to take you to and from the restaurant, a private Chef’s Dinner on the ocean-view Cottage deck—prepared and served by Casa’s head chef (one night); and, a gift basket of memories including two of Casa Laguna’s cozy robes, a set of our acclaimed eco-friendly sheets, and a selection of Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities. Certain limitations apply (see below). Total value of all items and services: $2675.00!
Bidding is currently taking place on Casa Laguna’s Facebook “Event” page until 6:00 PM, Saturday, October 1, 2011. Bidders must first click “I’m Attending,” then simply post a message on the event page including the amount of their bid. Bids must be made in $100 increments. Where two or more bidders bid the same amount due to posting lag, the bid that arrived first per Facebook time-stamp will be the current bid. All others will need to re-bid. Bidders should return to the page frequently to keep track of bidding and increase their bid when necessary. Be sure to read all rules and policies before bidding. The winning bid will be the highest bid received by 6:00 PM October 1, 2011, based on the Facebook time-stamp accompanying the bidder’s post. The winning bidder will be contacted by a Casa Laguna representative to arrange payment within 24 hours of the close of bidding. Payment will be made directly to AIDS Services Foundation of Orange County. Runner-up bids will be retained as back-up bids until payment has been received in full, at which time the winner will be announced.
