This is the first year Nashville Pride is producing “The Package Auction,” an event focused on raising funds for and awareness of Nashville Pride among Nashville’s GLBT community. “The Package Auction” focuses around a live auction of various packages such as vacations and trips to destinations across the country, weekend getaways, dinners, sporting events and much more.
This year’s event has transformed into “The Package Auction” from the previous Nashville Pride event – “The Bachelor Auction.” With the opportunity to get more individuals involved in Nashville Pride and the event, the decision was made to move to an event that would provide Live Auction items open for anyone to bid on not just those looking for a date. Therefore, The Package Auction event was born.
The Package Auction’s will be a fabulous time with lots of incredible packages to bid on while helping to raise funds for Nashville Pride. The packages up for auction:
