Fun and unusual personal experiences (to be scheduled post-COVID) include vacation home stays in Mexico and New Mexico; two night’s stay at Santa Fe’s famed luxury Inn of The Five Graces; dinner with local celebrity chefs, including James Beard Award-winner Cheryl Alters Jamison (author of "Texas Q: 100 Recipes for the Very Best Barbecue from the Lone Star State, All Smoke-Cooked to Perfection"); and a rare VIP tour of private museum vaults with Museum of International Folk Art (MOIFA) Executive Director Khristaan Villela.

Registration for the World of Treasure online auction begins at 9 a.m. MST on November 9, and is free and open to the public.
