Audi continues its charity affiliation with the Elton John AIDS Foundation this year with an out-of-this world eBay auction.
One lucky winner will get the opportunity to participate in two unique events on back-to-back days with 100% of the winning bid going to benefit HIV/AIDS prevention education and direct care and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS.
Audi has been running worldwide journalists, dealers and celebrities through its R8 introduction program in the Las Vegas area for the past couple of weeks. It will utilise this program as the first half of the auction, where the winning bidder and a guest will be offered a rare opportunity to drive the 2008 Audi R8 at an all-day driving experience on Saturday, February 24. Both track time at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and more everyday driving through the scenic Valley of Fire is on the schedule.
The next day on Sunday, February 25, it will be on to Los Angeles for the star-studded EJAF Academy Awards Viewing Party at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Drawing some of the very biggest names in the entertainment industry to raise money for the fight against HIV/AIDS, the EJAF bash is one of the most important events on Oscar night.
The 2008 R8 will figure prominently again on Oscar night as it becomes the highlighted auction vehicle at the party benefiting the Elton's organisation.
In addition to the ride & drive and exclusive party the winning bidder also receives round trip airfare, luxury hotel room accommodations, scheduled dinners, entertainment and entrance and up front seating at the EJAF Viewing Party.
Bidding ends February 5.
