Sep. 19, 2014, The Mint. The event boasted a variety of successful Valley singles "dream date" ideas that attendees bid on to win. All proceeds went to The Care Fund, a local nonprofit that supports Arizona families currently dealing with an extended illness or injury of their children. A total of 25 singles were to be available for auction, among them individuals like Arman Shields, real estate agent and former NFL-player, and Gloria Johnson, a pharmacist at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital. On why the Care Fund got involved with this imaginative charity event, Executive Director Cathy Sherwin says, "Single professionals are a very engaging, educated and giving group of individuals, who we're specifically targeting to become aware of what Care Fund can do to support their own community.
President of Crosby-Wright, Valerie Crosby, says that when this opportunity came her way, she jumped at the chance to raise money and help local philanthropic singles. "Our community is full of interesting and successful professional singles, many of whom work tirelessly for charities."
