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!  Come watch FOL flaunt this year's pick of the litter!
