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 Friends of Literacy going to pull this off? By auctioning off dates with these Bachelors to the highest bidders on the floor! Each bachelor is paired with a unique date package which has been donated by area businesses. So, all of you single ladies, put your money where your heart is and attend this one of a kind event on March 2nd. This year’s bachelors range in age from 23-63 so there is someone for everybody! 

This year’s event will take place at the Mill & Mine and is sure to be the biggest, most exciting auction yet! General Admission doors open at 7:30 pm and Auction begins at 8:00 pm. VIP Champagne Reception begins at 6:30 pm where you will have an opportunity to meet and mingle with the bachelors one on one before they hit the stage. Come join Friends of Literacy, along with Emcee Erin Donovan of Visit Knoxville and Auctioneer Dino Cartwright of WVLT as they flaunt this year’s cream of the crop! 


General Admission Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door. Includes food and cash bar before the auction. Doors open at 7:30 PM. Auction begins at 8:00 PM.
