P.A.L.S. Cancer Care in Bermuda is auctioning an exclusive lunch with one of nine CEOs through "Lunch With", with the winning bid benefiting the charitable organization.
The CEOs offering to host lunch in support of P.A.L.S. are: Brian Duperrault, President & CEO of MMC; AXIS Capital’s Chairman Michael Butt and CEO & President, John Charman; XL Group CEO Mike McGavick; Stephen Catlin, CEO of Catlin; former Premier Sir John.Swan; Neill Currie, CEO of RenaissanceRe; Philip Butterfield CEO of HSBC and Costas Miranthis, President & CEO of PartnerRe.
With one month to go till bidding closes, HSBC’s Phillip Butterfield and XL’s Mike McGavick have started off leading the pack, both having the highest “bids” of $150.
Co-ordinator of this unique fundraiser, Ian Coles, said that the lunches will be arranged for a day that is convenient for both the winning bidder and the CEO. “The location is entirely up to the CEO. He could invite the winner to share a sandwich in his office, host lunch at his favourite restaurant, or he might have another suggestion – that is entirely in his hands”.
“We anticipate having strong interest in the auction both on the island and from the international insurance market overseas” added Mr. Coles.
Ann Smith Gordon, President and CEO of P.A.L.S. said “I do want to express our deep gratitude to all the hosts of this unique event, not only for agreeing to participate but also for their generosity, time, interest and support of P.A.L.S. in this very special way”.
Bidding is open now at the website www.lunchwith.bm and the auction closes at 5pm on Thursday April 21st. 2011.
