Apparently at last year’s Necker Cup Pro-Am tennis event in the British Virgin Islands, Sir Richard Branson went around chatting with strangers while delivering drinks to players on the court—as you can see in the video above—which makes If Only‘s Necker auction all the more exciting. The lucky winner will get an all-inclusive getaway that includes entry for two into Necker’s qualifying tournament that is held at Sea Island Golf Club in Georgia on August 25, playing alongside legend Greg Norman. Aside from the chances to hit balls on 36 holes of golf on the Seaside and Plantation courses, the winner will also get a walking caddie, a three-night stay in the Forbes Five-Star Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club (which includes an on-call butler), access to all of Sea Island’s amenities (beach club, spa, tennis facilities), a personal driver, and entry for four to the event’s big charity dinner, auction, and party. The coolest part, is that the top three finishers in the qualifying game get to draw for a spot in the final Pro-Am event on Necker Island, meaning that if you’re good enough, you could be one of those players getting a drink delivered by Branson himself.
As of publication, the current highest bid is $ 11,000; the auction ends in 13 days.
