Friends of Literacy’s 9th Annual Bachelor Auction

After searching high and low, Friends of Literacy has discovered Knoxville’s best 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 East Tennessee. How is Friends of Literacy going to pull this off? By auctioning off dates with these men to the highest bidders on the floor! So, all of you single ladies, put your money where your heart is and attend this one of a kind event on March 29th at the Mill & Mine.

When you buy a ticket online, you can select the name of the bachelor you'd like to support when you check out. But if you can't make it to the event, you can still support your favorite bachelor (or bachelors) by making a donation directly in his name! The bachelor who collects the most donations - and gets the most fundraising support overall - will win the title of MOST ELIGIBLE BACHELOR for 2019. 

Join Friends of Literacy, along with Emcees Erin Donovan and Dino Cartwright, as they flaunt this year’s cream of the crop!

Many lucky women will walk away with a hunk on their arm and a spectacular date in their future. For example, one date package might be dinner for two and tickets to a show with your cutie! Ladies, if you’re single and ready to mingle, here’s your chance!! We have a man for every woman. For tickets or more information, call Friends of Literacy 865-549-7007.
