Friends of Literacy hosts bachelor auction to support cause

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – If you don’t have a date for Valentine’s don’t worry, you could place a bid and win the love of your life while also supporting a good cause this Spring. Knoxville’s Friends of Literacy is hosting a bachelor auction.

“After searching high and low, Friends of Literacy has discovered Knoxville’s most good looking, well-versed, and multi-talented men. Most importantly these men are single!  They’ve put their boyish reservations aside for the good of a greater cause: fighting illiteracy in Knox County.  How are they going to pull this off?  By auctioning off dates with Prince Charming himself to the highest bidder on the floor! This year a model, a police officer, three attorneys, three realtors, and a radio personality are among the 22 bachelors that will take the stage. During the event, Friends of Literacy will auction off these bachelors who have proven to be caring, well-rounded, and generous men.  Each bachelor is paired with a unique date package which has been donated by area businesses.”

It’s all happening Friday, March 3 at the Crowne Plaza. Tickets are $50 for general admission or $75 for the VIP experience.

Guests will begin arriving at 7:30 for an opportunity to mingle with bachelors before the main event. There will also be food and a cash bar.

Call (865) 549-7007 to or go to to reserve your ticket.
