If your answer to the age-old question—“Which famous person would you most like to have dinner with?”—includes the Pope, you can finally make that wish a reality. Quintessentially Lifestyle, the exclusive members-only concierge service, is offering its members the chance to meet Pope Francis (the 266th pope and current leader of the Roman Catholic Church) before his address in St. Peter’s Square on August 31, 2016.
The occasion is part of the World UnPlugNPlay Festival—an event devoted to unplugging from technology and engaging with those around us—taking place in Vatican City and sponsored by the table tennis manufacturer Killerspin. The Quintessentially experience includes a private tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel, followed by cocktails and dinner at the Connect21 Ping Pong Diplomacy Event. During the multi-day festival, participating members will be staying at the Forte Village Resort in Sardinia.
Packages that include a meet and greet with Pope Francis are available from $25,000 per person. Proceeds will benefit the non-profit organization Best Buddies International, which helps supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. (quintessentially.com).
