Charity Auction for Luxury Vacation Residences Benefits FXB International

On Tuesday, January 19th, 2010 the Luxury Swiss Travel Agency, Leo Trippi, in collaboration with Antiquorum, will hold its first charity auction benefitting Swiss association FXB International. For the auction, proprietors have made their exceptional international homes available, offering bidders an exclusive selection of dream vacations in the most beautiful properties in the world.

Holiday packages up for auction include a week in a chalet in Zermatt, a château in France, several nights in a riad in Marrakesh, and a luxury lodge in Africa. These extraordinary vacations are offered for groups of friends or families by the Leo Trippi agency and are managed by Antiquorum, the world leader of timepiece auctions. From the December 10th, 2009 until January 10th, 2010, bids for these unforgettable vacations can be submitted to Antiquorum via internet, telephone or fax.

Profits from the sales will be donated to the Swiss association François-Xavier Bagnoud International which, for 20 years, has fought poverty and AIDS through its actions aimed at reducing the devastating impact these have on children and their families. The funds raised will be used to support programs run by FXB International in the most vulnerable communities throughout 18 countries.

This culmination of this charity auction will be held on the January 19th, 2010 at a dinner in Geneva, which will be attended by Albina du Boisrouvray, President and Founder of the François-Xavier Bagnoud Association. During this time, guests and bidders from around the world can bid personally, virtually or by telephone.
