Wellington, FL - January 13, 2014 – JustWorld International is pleased to announce their live auction items for the 11th Annual JustWorld International Gala presented by Caryl Philips & Frank Zeiss. The glamorous red and gold gala is the first social event of the season, starting at 7 p.m. this Friday, January 17, 2014 at Belle Herbe Farm in Wellington, FL. The event features gourmet food stations, an open bar, entertainment, dancing, a silent auction and of course, the thrilling live auction. Some of this year's auction items will present once in a lifetime opportunities, with packages ranging from time with sought after polo professionals to striking paintings.

Have you ever dreamt of taking polo lessons from top professional polo players, Nic Roldan, Brandon Philips and Kris Kampsen? The 2014 Live Auction will offer you the opportunity to make that dream a reality. The winner of this highly sought after polo package will step into a world that they have never known, enjoying a week worth of lessons (five in total), as well as a celebratory dinner with the guys at The Grille Fashion Cuisine in Wellington. No price can be put on this one of a kind experience.

One of the most coveted auction items has returned to the JustWorld live auction—the Dutta Corporation and Guido Klatte’s “Transatlantic Single Stall Round Trip Airfare for One Horse.” This package provides single stall air transport from the JFK Airport in New York, to Amsterdam, Netherlands or Liege, Belgium, through the Dutta Corporation. The lucky horse will return to the United States by way of Guido Klatte International Horse Transport. This package is valid for one year and includes a three-day USDA quarantine upon return.

The experience to watch the 2014 FEI World Cup Jumping & Dressage Finals in Lyon, France sits right at your finger tips.

Through the generosity of the Hampton Classic Horse Show, 14 guests will have access to the horse show each day, and will have the luxury of the VIP Chalet Table and VIP parking pass. Even better this year, the Wolffer Estate Vineyards will open their gates for a private tour and wine tasting.

The Bellagio Resort and Casino is offering a VIP package for a three-night stay in a luxurious Bellagio suite. The package also includes two tickets to the "O" Show, VIP check-in, and limousine service from to and from the airport. This amazing package will be valid until January 31, 2015, so start planning that vacation you have been dreaming of.

If a five-night stay at the luxurious Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel captures your attention, plan for a relaxing escape. Four people will have the chance to travel to Alberta, Canada, where they will have the option to enjoy a spa day for two, a foursome of golf on the resorts’ breathtaking 18-hole golf course nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, and an exceptional 30-minute helicopter ride through the incredible Rocky Mountain landscape.

The 11th Annual JustWorld Gala Live Auction will also feature exciting getaways, including the Big Apple Package, which offers a four night stay in a Sky View Guestroom at the Intercontinental Hotel in NYC’s Time Square, tickets to a Broadway show of your choice and dinner at the Peking Duck House in NYC.

Take some time to pamper yourself at the Eau Palm Beach Resort with the Palm Beach Escape. This package includes a two-night stay at the beachfront resort and a three-day car luxury rental with Chariots of Palm Beach.

For the sports fans, Sun Life Stadium in Miami, FL, presents a VIP NFL Package for 10 people to enjoy a Miami Dolphins game during the 2014 season. The group will enjoy a tour of the field, as well as a meet and greet with the players.

Another auction package features an original custom painting of your horse by Ecuadorian equine painter, Jorge Ernesto Montalvo Flores, better known as Giorgio. He has been commissioned to paint horses for HRH Queen Sofia of Spain, The Academy of the Andalusian, the Levallois family (French Sport Horse breeders), Sheika Latifah Al Maktoum and the Spanish rider Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza.

The night is sure to be full of action as the live auction items are put up for bidding, co-emceed by the renowned equestrian announcer, Steven Wilde, and Rocco Mangel of Rocco’s Tacos.  With Wilde and Mangel’s help, and the talents of professional auctioneer, George McNeely, the 2014 JustWorld International Gala Live Auction will be nothing short of a success.

The JustWorld Annual Gala presented by Caryl Philips & Frank Zeiss has been the hit of the social scene since its introduction 11 years ago. As the first event of the equestrian season, it is a sell-out event that attracts people from all parts of the community in an effort to further JustWorld's mission. Tables are sold out, and individual tickets are selling faster than ever.

JustWorld continues to work diligently as a humanitarian organization that funds life-changing education, nutrition, health and hygiene, and leadership and cultural development programs for impoverished children in Cambodia, Honduras, and Guatemala.
