Because your own bucket list isn’t ambitious enough, Goviva is bringing you the ones from the top. The new online marketplace brings you events hosted by celebrities along with exclusive events like the World Cup, Emmy Awards and Art Basel. You know, the kind of scene where you might catch sight of a Brangelina or a Kanye-dashian. Yes, made that one up myself.
“Our experiences offer people once-in-a-lifetime opportunities in things they have a passion for such as sports, entertainment, food, fashion, art, film, and active adventure,” said President of Goviva, Robert Tuchman. “We want people to live out their dreams with us.”
As part of Goviva’s kickoff the company has partnered with ESPN, creating a “bucket list” sweepstakes offering one winner a chance to pick any experience they would like to attend in the world. ESPN will be awarding Goviva gift codes of $200 to five winners each day, via their radio network on shows like Mike and Mike.
Goviva’s roster reads like a mix between Gilt Jetsetter’s best locales and Bethenny Frankel’s upcoming monthly sched. Prices aren’t cheap, but it’s all about the access. Right now, the lineup consists of treasures like, “Elton John’s Las Vegas Getaway,” a cool $1,975 per person, the “Maui Film Festival,” busting at the seams with a price tag of $10,730 per person, and the list goes on.
But why can’t I just pay for these events on my own, and for cheaper, you might ask. Truth be told, we’re not quite sure. But upon first visit, it appears these once-in-a-lifetime (but not really) events are closed to the normal folk, normally. And that means Goviva is opening them up to an audience previously shut out.
Just like that time the popular lunch table opened its arms to the glee club kids. We wonder whether Goviva’s doors will stay open longer than the cool kids table did…
