US Airways Golf members made Dividend Miles auction history this October by bidding a record number of frequent flyer miles on special vacation packages to the world`s finest golf resorts.

The winning bids totaled over 1.8 million miles, all of which will be distributed evenly between US Airways` two national charity partners, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Save the Children.

The mystery prize includes roundtrip airfare for two on US Airways, world-class golf at The Homestead, superior resort accommodations, breakfast and dinner daily, afternoon tea, nightly theater tickets, and more.
