SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) - There are only a few days left to bid on incredible travel-related packages offered through the Hotel Council of San Francisco's "Million Dollar Mission" online auction, so hurry over to for amazing offers. The site includes an unsurpassed collection of hotel and restaurant packages from America's favorite city as well as a selection of exceptional travel packages from around the globe.

While hundreds of bids have already been received, the opening costs for a number of already-discounted items have been further reduced to ensure that everything is sold. Featured among the 100+ experiential travel packages are a number of new items including a round trip ticket on United Airlines valid for travel in the US 48, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean and access to the Oakland A's owner's box (maximum of 20 guests).

Bidders can also utilize the "Buy it Now" feature, which enables them to purchase their desired package immediately.

In the true spirit of hospitality, The Hotel Council of San Francisco is partnering with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to raise funds for vital research and support. One of the most exciting Million Dollar Mission campaign initiatives is this unparalleled online auction featuring the City's most acclaimed hotels, restaurants and attractions.

When viewing items on the "Million Dollar Mission" online auction site, bidders should note that the listed retail prices reflect the price at which the items are typically priced. However, the opening bid price is a percentage off that retail price.

This city-wide crusade has brought together thousands of San Francisco hoteliers in a "Million Dollar Mission." The campaign, poised to become one of the City's most impressive single-industry supported fund-raising initiatives, will help provide financial, educational and social services for individuals and their families affected by blood cancer.

The online auction ends July 27th, 2012, so take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and bid on your favorite travel packages before time runs out.
