"There just aren't any men in Charlotte!" I've whined to my almost exclusively coupled up circle of friends, as they nod in mock sympathy. Clearly, I need to find a new brood of single ladies to commiserate with.
Birds of a perennially single feather such as myself would be wise to flock to the Deltas of Charlotte Foundation Bachelor Auction.
The event includes a Silent and Live Auction. During the Silent Auction, bidders can select from an assortment of items such as themed baskets, artwork or jewelry. But it's the Live Auction that's likely to keep us on our toes.
During the Live Auction, ladies have the opportunity to bid on a date with one of Charlotte's eligible bachelors, ranging in age from 25 to 65. DOCF promises a "someone for everyone" selection of gentlemen, with plenty of diversity in culture, careers and personality. The bid also includes a package consisting of various items such as gift certificates for dinner for two, spa services, and a variety of activities. The proceeds will support scholarships for college-bound women and to DOCF's mentorship programs, Delta Academy and Delta G.E.M.S.
You can mingle with your new beau at the Official Bachelor Auction after-party, at Blue Restaurant.
DOCF suggests interested parties buy their tickets ASAP, as a sold-out event is likely.
$25. Saturday, May 5. 6 p.m. McGlohon Theatre, 345 N. College St.
