SAGE AAdvantage Miles Auction

New York, London, San Francisco, Paris: Get ready to travel!

SAGE Raleigh in partnership with RBPN (Raleigh Business and Professional Network, Raleigh’s LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce) and Resources For Seniors will be hosting Pride Life EXPO 2020. It will be held April 4, 2020 at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh, NC. The Pride Life Expo 2020 will build on the highly successful 2018 Triangle Expo for LGBTQ Aging Adults. With SAGE Raleigh, RBPN and Resources for Seniors combining efforts, the Pride Life Expo 2020 will be more inclusive of the entire LGBTQ community and will be a much larger event with vendors and service providers that appeal to a much broader age group.

American Airlines JetTo help generate funds needed for planning and conducting the Pride Life Expo 2020, SAGE Raleigh is conducting an auction of the 250,000 AAdvantage Miles that American Airlines generously donated to SAGE Raleigh as the naming sponsor of the 2018 Triangle Expo for LGBTQ Aging Adults.

What can you do with 250,000 AAdvantage Miles? How about two ‘Level One First Class’ or four ‘Coach Fare’ roundtrip tickets to Europe. Or, want to see more of the USA; 250,000 miles can provide ten roundtrip coach fares to anywhere within the continental U.S. AAdvantage miles can be used for travel on American Airlines, American Eagle®, oneworld® airlines and partner airlines on flights to nearly 1,000 destinations worldwide. These AAdvantage Miles are available for use in accordance with the terms and conditions of American Airlines’ AAdvantage Program.
