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 is FOL going to pull this off? By auctioning off dates with these Guys That Give 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 3rd. The bachelors this year range in age from 24-59 so there is someone for everybody!
