Online auction features potential Bucket List experiences

(Fayetteville, NC) July 25, 2018 — If getting up close and perhaps personal with celebrities is on your Bucket List, you just may be in luck with an online auction launching this week. And here’s the bonus: Even though the auction is global, all the monies will stay in our local area to support Arts Education and Youth Development programs.

The Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County presents Live, On Location! The charitable auction launches via eBay/PayPal Giving Fund on this Thursday, July 26, and concludes on Sunday, August 5.

“Our Director of Development, UniQue Webster, has utilized her entertainment contacts to secure VIP tickets and experiences for the online auction,” says Deborah Martin Mintz, Executive Director of the Arts Council. “The best part is that all funds raised from the auction go toward the Arts Council’s Arts Education and Youth Development initiatives, including the Artists in Schools program.”

Here are the experiences up for bid:

- Four VIP tickets to Megyn Kelly TODAY.  

- Two VIP tickets to The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

- Four production passes to Wheel of Fortune, along with a swag bag filled with items from the show, including an autographed photo by Pat Sajak and Vanna White.

- Two VIP tickets to see CONAN. 

- Two VIP tickets to The Jim Jefferies Show, including a photo with Jim Jefferies and the opportunity to sit in on the recording of his podcast.

- Two studio audience tickets to Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. 

- Two VIP tickets to The Dr. Oz Show (filming will start in September 2018).  

- Two VIP tickets to LIVE with Kelly and Ryan.

Winners will have the opportunity to coordinate preferred date directly with the network or production company.

Here is the link to the auction:

“Live, On Location” is designed to provide opportunities to bid on sometimes hard-to-get tickets to popular shows. Transportation and hotel accommodations are not covered in the entertainment packages.

All proceeds will support the Arts Council’s Arts Education & Youth Development programs, which utilize multi-variant art forms to educate and engage youth. Studies show that the arts can make all academic subjects accessible and engaging. They can keep kids in school; and they can open a window of constructive, creative inspiration for kids who need it most. The Arts Council’s Artists in Schools program offers matching grants – of 55-66 percent – to public and private schools. 


The Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County was founded in 1973. As a link between artists, arts and cultural organizations and the community, the nonprofit agency administers programs in partnership with a variety of local agencies to stimulate community development through the arts. The Arts Council supports individual creativity, cultural preservation, economic development and lifelong learning through the arts.

The Arts Council’s grants, programs and services are funded in part by contributions from businesses and individuals, and through grants from the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County and the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.
