Go north to Sonoma in a town car for a private tour of the original Williams-Sonoma store - and bring your shopping list, because you have a $1,000 shopping spree to outfit your home kitchen.  Spend two nights at the fabulous Meadowood Napa Valley Resort, recently named “Napa’s premiere luxury hideaway” by Town & Country Magazine.
 
Head back to San Francisco, ring up your local pals for a private dinner for up to ten guests at the Williams-Sonoma test kitchen, located in their corporate offices near Ghirardelli Square with views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Your meal will be prepared and served by three of the city's top toques - Nancy Oakes (Boulevard Restaurant), Traci Des Jardins (Jardinière, Arguello, The Commissary, Mijita Cocina Mexicana, Public House and TRANSIT), and Dominique Crenn (Atelier Crenn and Petit Crenn).

NEW YORK NIGHTS

Tickets for “Hamilton” are in such demand that people are camping overnight for standby tickets.  Luckily, you won’t need your tent, just a pen to check off your bucket list. You’ll not only get the hottest tickets in town, but also dinner with two cast members and an in-theater meet and greet as well!

Once you’ve gotten your fill of the theater, head to Betony for a stage (daylong apprenticeship) overseeing prep work for dinner service in the kitchen and at the bar. You and a guest will alternate learning from the head bartender and kitchen chef before enjoying the fruits of your labor.  Stay for dinner and experience the tasting menu from Executive Chef Bryce Shuman who has earned three stars from The New York Times, one Michelin star, and was a 2015 Food & Wine “Best New Chef.”   

Notes: Winning bidder to provide three date options. Additional tickets can be purchased upon booking based on availability. Experience must be booked a minimum of 60 days in advance. Participating cast members have minor roles and/or are in the ensemble. Our No Kid Hungry chef supporters have created these unique packages and experiences exclusively for our supporters and to benefit Share Our Strength.  Live auction items, other than package items like wines and spirits, are not transferrable to another organization.

PARADISE IN PUNTA MITA

The magical charm and ideal weather of Mexico’s west coast have long been a magnet for those seeking the perfect vacation and a respite from colder climates. Enjoy a four-night stay in a garden-view Casita room at this five-star Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Mexico, which offers more privacy and better service than any other hotel on Mexico’s Pacific Coast.

Enjoy pure luxury with access to three pools, including an Infinity-edge pool, together with two magnificent private beaches, which are attended by Four Seasons signature pool service with chilled towels, face misting, bottled water, fresh juices, and fruit. Besides a well-equipped gym, the resort provides a whirlpool, ten lighted tennis courts, snorkeling equipment, and kayaks. One of two Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses boasts the world’s only natural island hole.

Wake up every morning with breakfast for two each day. In the evening, enjoy a private experiential cooking class for two with your choice of chefs from the resort’s restaurants, Bahia or Ketsi, where you’ll cook on the beach and learn to prepare fresh fish or authentic Mexican cuisine; it’s your choice.
 
We’ll take care of all of the planning from booking the flights to concierge service. This resort is rated #4 of the Top 35 Resorts in Mexico by Conde Nast Traveler and among the Top 500 in the World by Travel + Leisure Magazine.
