Each package will benefit one of 12 “remarkable nonprofits changing the world”.
These specially selected gifts that give back will be revealed from November 7 through November 18 at www.Charitybuzz.com/Holiday. Each day, a new experience will hit the auction block, counting down to the launch of Charitybuzz’s 2013 Holiday Gift Guides.

Bidding on all the exclusive experiences will be open through Cyber Monday, December 2.

One winning bidder and their lucky guest will tee off with the Black Knight himself at Wentworth in Surrey, England at the prestigious Gary Player Invitational charity golf tournament.
Euope’s leading pro-celebrity golf event, the Invitational will be held in July 2014 following the Open Championship. The package for two includes two spots playing in the Pro-Am with Player, luxury accommodations, all-access tickets to private events, luxury gift bags and much more.
“I assure that our Gary Player Invitational event will provide a day to remember for whoever joins us at Wentworth,” said Player. “Our charity series is so important to me, and this is truly one of the best days of my year. I am very much looking forward to sharing a round of golf with the winners.
“I am honoured to continue helping the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and delighted that the money we raise can do so much good for young people around the world.”
