If you’re a fan of ultra-luxe auctions and stacked show line-ups, you might want to consider planning a trip to Las Vegas for March 8th. One Drop––a non-profit organization focused on providing clean, safe water to people around the world––is hosting its seventh annual auction at the “O” Theater at the Bellagio Casino & Resort next month.

There’s more than just an auction to get excited about. Attendees will also be treated to a performance starring The Blue Man Group choreographed by Andrew Winghart, Alexander Ekman, and Keone & Mari, with a score from Hans Zimmer.

The auction has its fair share of bucket list experiences, including a trip on the world’s largest private residential yacht, The World. Other items include a private jet to a villa at COMO Parrot Cay in the Turks & Caicos, a getaway to a private château in St. Tropez, a Serengeti safari in Tanzania, a Muriwai White McLaren 570S Spider, and a limited-edition Audemars Piguet timepiece with a special engraving. Prices for each auction item will range from $25,000 to $300,000 and all proceeds will be used to support One Drop’s work.

If you can’t make it to the live event, the non-profit will also host an online auction on February 22. This silent auction will feature 60 items of various values. Intrigued? You can read more about the auction on the One Drop website.
