By now, unless you are living under a rock somewhere, you are likely aware that this coming Monday, September 7th, The DIS Unplugged will be hosting a 12 Hour Labor Day Marathon Show to raise money for Give Kids The World Village. This event will be LIVE from 10 am, EST until 10 pm, EST on the DIS Unplugged YouTube Channel.
Part of this event also features an auction running now through September 7th @ 10 pm, EST on Handbid.com, with all proceeds benefiting Give Kids The World. We thought we’d take a quick browse through the almost 600 items available and see what Disney Vacation Club collectibles we could find!
By far, the most popular item in this year’s marathon auction is the Disney Vacation Club Monopoly Board Game. In digging into the history of this item a bit, it appears this was never sold and was given as a gift to members of the 2013 DVC Member Cruise, making it EXTREMELY rare!
How about something from the Grand Opening of Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort? This Cast Member lanyard was given out to members of the resorts opening team back on August 4th, 2009!
For those tired of getting their parking spot stolen at work or in front of your house, install this Disney Vacation Club – Member Parking Sign! I can’t promise anyone will pay attention to it, but at least it would be cool…
If you want to add a little more DVC ‘swag’ to your collection, this bundle may be the perfect item for you. This auction item includes a Disney Vacation Club hat, padfolio, luggage tag, and lanyard.
Even though it is not Disney Vacation Club related, this last item is too fantastic to pass up mentioning. Our friends at Dreams Unlimited Travel have offered up a 4-Night Disney Cruise Line sailing as part of the DIS Unplugged Labor Day Marathon Auction. For just $25, you can snag a chance at winning a balcony stateroom for you and up to four guests! All proceeds from raffle ticket sales go directly to Give Kid the World!
For those unfamiliar with Give Kids The World, here is a little information about who they are and what they do from their website:
“Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with critical illnesses and their families.
The Village and its community partners provide children and their families accommodations in fully-furnished villas, transportation, tickets to theme parks, meals, daily entertainment, and much more.
Each year 27,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with a critical illness. Half of all children eligible for a wish through a partnering wish-granting organization choose to visit Central Florida and its collection of theme parks and other attractions.
Our goal, quite simply, is to provide everything these deserving families need to make their trip the vacation of a lifetime. Since 1986, more than 175,000 children and families have had their dreams fulfilled in a whimsical Village, unlike any other place on earth.”
Be sure to tune-in, chat, and join us LIVE beginning at 10:00 am, EST on Monday for the DIS Unplugged 12-Hour Labor Day Marathon, which included a special edition of The DVC Show!
