Live Auction Experiences

Game Night


Back by popular demand is GAME NIGHT! Join Clay for a memorable night of board games, mouth-watering pizza, and the opportunity to spend some quality time with the NIP co-founder himself.  We will work with your group to find a time and location that works for everyone.

* Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodations – (For up to 10 people)


Dinner at Faye’s

Why mess with a good thing? Our first ever “Dinner at Faye’s” was a smashing success and Faye is determined to make this year even better! A group of lucky NIP supporters will be welcomed into the home where Faye raised Clay for over 30 years and was mildly successful at getting him to eat his vegetables! Join Faye, Clay, and Nick for a re-creation of the home cooked meals that Faye made Clay as a child. This is a one of a kind opportunity to reminisce about the good old days!

* Participants are responsible for their own travel to and accommodations in the Raleigh area – (For up to 5 people)


Broadway with Ben and Clay

Ben and Clay are excited to be your hosts for a memorable evening of dining and entertainment in New York City. The evening will begin with Ben and Clay hosting a dinner at one of their favorite restaurants in Manhattan. After dinner, they will guide you over to the Music Box Theater where the two winners will sit in Ben’s reserved seats for an evening performance of Dear Evan Hansen! Then after the show, join Ben and Clay backstage for pictures and a behind-the-scenes look at how the cast puts on this award-winning musical.

* Participants are responsible for their own travel to and accommodations in NYC. The date to be determined based on winner’s schedule and ticket availability – (For up to 2 people)
