Live Auction Item #24: Neiman Marcus Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience (Value: Priceless)
There are lots of reasons that folks want to be children again. But hold on to your driver’s license because Cattle Baron’s Ball gals and Neiman Marcus Downtown just came up with an incredible reason to be way underage.
One of the holiday highlights is the windows of the NM flagship. Those creative wunderkinds create a whimsical array of scenes connected by mammoth tubes.
Now for the right bid at Saturday’s live auction, the child (6 to 12 years old) of your choice will be able to submit artwork or an idea based on this year’s concept for the NM-ers to “bring to life in the holiday windows.”
But, wait! There’s more. You didn’t think Cattle Baron’s would stop with a simple little thing like having a youngster’s concept executed by the retailing geniuses, did you?
NM Downtown will host a preview party for a dozen of the young artist’s friends that will include “tubing” through the windows before the rest of the world. Sorta like getting an iPhone 5 before release.
And, of course, your children’s first name will be displayed like any great artist.
And this offer isn’t just available for parents. A grandparent could be the ultimate Santa Claus for some lucky youngster. Or, what about winning the bid and having a child from one of the countless nonprofit organizations for children be the star of the project? If you’ve seen some of the artwork produced at The Family Place, Genesis, Children’s Cancer Fund, Ronald McDonald House of Dallas or a dozen other facilities, you know that these children are amazingly creative. It just might be your opportunity to celebrate and showcase their talent.
This is such a unique offer that it’s never been available before . . . not even in NM’s Christmas book!
