2019 Live Auction Packages!

Hang out in the pubs or explore the streets in Dublin, Ireland!

The live auction at the La Vie En Rose Ball will be packed with fun and exciting packages for you to bid on! The live auction is a tremendous opportunity to experience an day or evening with your friends locally, or book the trip of a lifetime on the other side of the world! All of this is done while helping out our nonprofit organization raise money to continue our community project and rejuvenating Friendship Botanic Gardens!

Below is a list of the 8 live auction packages that will be available for bidding at the ball on Saturday, June 8th. Our 2018 favorite (South Africa) sold 5 times last year, so we decided to bring it back this year!!!

Enjoy delicious Italian food and explore Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii!
