Spoleto Festival USA launched their online auction on Tuesday. Proceeds from the auction, which continues through Feb. 11, benefit the Spoleto Festival Orchestra. There will also be a live auction on Feb. 4 at the Memminger. The event will feature hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and a performance from the Rene Marie Quartet.
The top 10 items up for bid include the chance to act as an extra on the sets of Burn Notice or Army Wives, a private dinner for eight from Charleston Grill's Michelle Weaver, and trips to Rome, Napa Valley, and Dewees Island. We're also excited about the Cynthia Rowley shopping party, the design consultation from Gil P. Shafer, and the chance to spend the day with Shepard Fairey (opening bid: $1,000).
The cheapest item is the Artisan Meat Share from Cypress, valued at $250. On the other end of the spectrum, a private dinner for 12 from FIG's Mike Lata is valued at $8,000.
Let the bidding begin.
