The Prize

Spend the night for two at Palazzina Grassi in Venice, Italy. This Luxury Boutique Hotel just a few yards from St. Mark's Square is the one and only hotel in Italy designed by Philippe Starck, and has revolutionized the whole concept of top-end hospitality and style, creating a gem of a location with alluring beauty and a sensual atmosphere.

Entering Palazzina Grassi feels like being welcomed into someone’s spectacular home: warm and cozy, elegant and refined. And you will feel at home here too! A magical space embodying a deep love for Venice history, culture and contemporary life, Palazzina Grassi allows its guests to experience the “City of the Doges” like nowhere else. It is a unique lifestyle concept that creates a totally “ExtraOrdinary” place, fascinating its guests wherever they come from.

Elegant and refined, The Restaurant is a luxurious gastronomic retreat, and the favourite fine-dining rendezvous for both local Venetians and hotel guests. The carefully created menus offer both the most contemporary dishes and flavours, and an older, more traditional Italian cuisine, embedded deep within Italy’s rich history and culture. The stunning ‘show kitchen’ allows diners to interact with the chef and watch these spectacular dishes come together. Or just sit back and enjoy a mouth-watering meal surrounded by a gallery of chandeliers made of the famous Murano glass.

The auction winner will enjoy a true Venetian experience with a 1-night stay at this enchanting hotel, continental breakfast and a tasting menu dinner for 2 included (except beverages). 

You will visit this historic city as you have never visited it before. 

This experience is valid from November 3, 2019 to February 3, 2020 subject to availability. Blackout dates over festive period (from December 23 to January 6). Room type is Superior with possibility of upgrade subject to availability.

 

The Cause

CAF is a non-profit organization that was founded in Milan in 1979 by Ida Borletti. It’s the first center in Italy that hosts and takes care of minors who have been victims of violence and abuse, and it has welcomed and taken care of over 800 minors in the past 30 years. It’s a temporary home for children who have fallen victim to serious situations and who need to find a competent, stable and specialized environment where they can talk about their traumatic experiences before returning to their families or to their foster/adoptive parents.

The association tries to understand the personal family and social motivations behind why the parents where not able to offer adequate care and safety to their children. Over the past 30 years, CAF has made a name for itself as a community with an extremely specialized method in caring for abused children. Social workers also work with the center for some of their most serious and difficult cases due to the center’s specialization in psychology and education.
