About Us

Generous Adventures Travel Auctions is the only all-travel benefit auction on the Internet. Our mission is to join responsible businesses, conscious-minded travelers and other individuals in an effort to make the world a better place. Toward achieving this, our small staff secures a host of quality worldwide vacations, lists them on our highly visited website, sells them to the highest bidders, and donates the profits to carefully selected non-profit organizations. We offer savings for travelers, publicity for providers and funding for our beneficiaries – Everybody wins. We are a modest ‘no-frills’ organization and operate with two part-time staff and five extended support team members, many of whom volunteer their time.

Staff & Support Team


Terry Murphy

Awesome and Admirable Auction Director Eccentric, counselor, big brother and general bleeding heart, it’s no wonder Terry wound up connected with Generous Adventures. He trades collectibles between work, parenting and promoting human welfare. Terry doesn’t think outside the box. With him, there is no box.

Sally Oberstein

Magnanimous Founder and Director World traveler and entrepreneur, Sally has produced fundraising events and organized special projects from coast to coast. Her quirky style, irrepressible dreams, and innovative look at the big picture, guide staff and extended support team at Generous Adventures. Her spontaneous sushi feasts and kayaking offers keep staff well fed and out of trouble.



Emily Murphy Doumerc

Meritable Marketing DirectorFrom a varied background in health and business, Emily brings us a holistic perspective to Generous Adventures, creating greater opportunities for our trip providers and richer travel experiences for our clients. She works her marketing magic from her Oregon office while her imaginative 5-year old dances at kindergarten.

Taylor Holfeld

Global Marketing Advocate As a professional traveler, Taylor is getting to know the world, first-hand. On an open-ended world quest from his mobile office (currently in Thailand) he offers communication skills that AT&T could learn from. However stridently and full of gusto Taylor proceeds, he mixes an honest approach to public relations and marketing with the gifts of knowing all the right questions to ask AND hearing the answers.



Murray Wellons

Tremendous and Talented Tours Development Specialist From a mix of marketing, finance and tourism, Murray brings logic to the GA table when it comes to wild hairs and future endeavors. He’s the guy that considers every person’s perspective and plants our feet to the ground in our dream world of where to travel to next. An antique watch collector, this unpredictable, witty, charming (slightly crazy) Mad Hatter regularly forgets to wind his own.

Gay Rutherford

International Researcher and Envy of All Staff Originally from southern California, this lighthearted travel enthusiast is on a trail to all corners of the earth. As she hops from continent to continent, this astute traveler keeps the “home offices” abreast of new and interesting adventures and accommodations.



Jane Tollesfrud

Spirited and smart Sales and Marketing Ambassador and has spent much of her life teaching children and raising tarantulas. She is fearless, loves sunshine, the outdoors, and believes in positive change and wearing comfortable shoes.
