The Charity Auction

It has been only two weeks since we first asked Fine & Country agents to donate prizes for the Charity Auction, which takes place after the Fine & Country International Conference on 11th July 2014. Already we have been blown

away by the network’s generosity, but there is still time to play your part in the Auction and donate a prize. These prizes will be auctioned after the three course meal and all proceeds will be put into the Fine & Country Foundation.

If you are stuck for ideas, here are some examples of previously donated prizes:

  • The directors of Newton Fallowell generously donated 1 week accommodation in a 3 bedroom penthouse, at the Four Seasons Resort 5*+ Chiang Mai, Thailand, worth &10,000.
  • Fine & Country Southsea donated a VIP race day for 2 at Fontwell Park Race Course, worth &300.
  • The Fine & Country Marketing team donated 1 week stay in a beautiful Tuscan villa worth &1,500.

If you wish to donate a prize for the Fine & Country Gala Dinner Charity Auction, please contact the Fine & Country Media Centre on 020 7409 8402.
