UniqueAuction.com: Canadians Vie for Trip to Moon for $100 Trip to be Auctioned Off on Canadian Online Auction Site

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 3, 2005) - UniqueAuction.com, the online auction company that makes dreams come true, is thrilled to announce that it will be auctioning off a once in a lifetime trip to the moon.

For $100 online auction goers can place a bid on the moon voyage, but ultimately it won't be the highest bid that wins but the most unique-a UniqueAuction policy. This ensures that the winner isn't the one with the fattest wallet but the one who plays the game with the most strategy. A little luck doesn't hurt either of course!

This auction is not a gimmick; when UniqueAuction makes a promise it always delivers beyond expectations-in this case out of this world! The winner will train just as an astronaut would and ultimately orbit around the moon in a spacecraft.

The auction will begin at noon on Wednesday October 5th and be given away to the most unique bidder on January 1st 2006. The winner will celebrate the New Year knowing they will soon be among the very few and very fortunate who have taken the moon journey. Better than the beach, a bungee jumping adventure, or even a trip to the wonders of the world-this trek to the moon conquers all. The winner will go, as the old adage says, "where no one has gone before!"

On the moon agenda: A ride in a rocket, a God's eye view of planet earth, weightlessness, and of course an up-close-and-personal meeting with the earth's night-light.

To spice the auction up a bit, UniqueAuction will also be offering anyone one UniqueAuction dollar towards a moon bid for each time they moon the moon or moon someone else-a photo of the stunt is required and must be sent to us via email.

UniqueAuction invites media to be a part of this great event and help spread the word to Canadians that their chance to go to outer space is here! Please join us for a press conference regarding the moon auction at 10:00a.m. on Wednesday October 5th, at the National Press Club, 150 Wellington Street in Ottawa.
