The second annual Date For A Cause charity date auction will take place on Friday, November 8, 2013 at The Mint Lounge, 7373 E. Camelback Road in Scottsdale. Dates with 16 bachelors and bachelorettes will be auctioned off to raise funds to support New Pathways For Youth, an organization that transforms the lives of youth through mentoring.
The highly anticipated second annual event will be emceed by radio personality Kid Corona from 101.5 jamz and Vanessa Ramirez, in-game event host for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Among the list of singles participating in the live auction are 3TV news reporter Casey James, pro-athletes Rashad Johnson and Justin Bethel and IFBB Figure Pro, fitness model Felicia Romero. Others include some of the most eligible Valley area professionals. Event attendees will have fun competitively bidding on the bachelor/bachelorette of their choice. Each date package is designed to feature some of the Valley’s best restaurants and fun activities such as tickets to sporting events, hot air balloon rides, skydiving and more.
The purpose of the event is to “create a fun, feel-good evening that offers charity-minded men and women the opportunity to meet, network and make a difference through raising money for a great cause”, states Cherie Bond, event organizer. Last year’s date auction raised over $15,000 for the mentoring program.
