Flirting with Attraction Bachelor/ette Auction for Charity
Bellevue, WA—Join 16 of the Puget Sound’s most eligible bachelor and bachelorettes on Thursday October 18, 2012 for a night of auction madness at Flirting with Attraction. This benefit event is being held in support of local non-profits Hope Heart Institute and Queen, It’s a New Day. The goal is to raise $60,000 to support both causes.
The audience will have the opportunity to bid on singles from all over the Puget Sound. Winners will receive a date package and a night out with the single bid on. Our dates include everything from a trapeze class to horseback riding to a gourmet food tour dinner. For anyone not single we will also be auctioning off date packages for all of you couples out there.
“When I was asked to be a part of the Flirting with Attraction date auction benefiting not just one, but two great charities, I jumped at the chance. Traditionally, charity events required you to dress up, attend a dinner and listen to a keynote speaker – this is not for everyone, especially many young adults. Events such as this allows patrons to grab a few cocktails, bid on exciting date packages, and meet new people in a less formal environment,” stated Krista Townsend, Flirting with Attraction bachelorette.
Flirting with Attraction takes place on Thursday October 18, 2012 at Suite Lounge in Bellevue. Doors open at 7:00pm and the program begins at 7:30pm. The evening will be hosted by Miss Seattle Jean-Sun Ahn along with auctioneer Troy McVicker of Event Source Northwest. Each guest will receive a swag bag filled with over $100 worth of goodies. VIP tables are available with an upgraded swag bag, bottle of wine and guaranteed seating for up to six people.
The purpose of this event is to raise money for two great local charities while bringing singles from the Seattle/Bellevue area together with an easy-going fun vibe. Our singles include a lawyer, doctor, radio personalities, project manager, non-profit CEO, runway model, pageant beauties and so much more.
“With losing two very important people in my life to heart disease, I chose the Hope Heart Institute as one of our charities to bring attention to the number one killer of both men and women, said Larissa Long, Mrs. Pacific Northwest and event organizer, “and Queen it’s a New Day has changed the lives of so many women just by giving women a sense of hope and confidence. I had to incorporate a charity about self-worth into an auction for singles because we all know it’s not easy to put yourself out there like that.”
Admission is $20 before the event and $30 at the door. There are also VIP tables available for $200. You can get your tickets through Planana at http://planana.com/flirtingwithattraction.
