divider Donates Ten Thousand Dollars to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Palm Beach Gardens, FL – March 29, 2012 – attended the LLS bachelor auction fundraiser this past Thursday to support their efforts to find a cure for blood cancers. Although they did not bid on any of the bachelors, or put in silent bids for the wide array of prizes, they awarded The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society a Ten-Thousand dollar check.

The event was held at Cabo Flats cantina and tequila bar, in Downtown at the Gardens West Palm Beach, Florida. The turn out was extraordinary, wall to wall and not an empty seat in the house. Guests were encouraged at the door to donate, receiving drink tickets and free food for their initial contribution.

A wide away of products, services, and gift baskets were available for silent bids prior to the bachelor auction in the VIP area sectioned for the fundraiser. Guests enjoyed endless chips and salsa, empanadas, and socializing before the auction got underway on the Cabo Flats’ stage.

The auction was MC’d by Josh Cohen of WZZR Real Radio and Virginia and J-bird from the Wild 95.5 morning radio show. Fourteen bachelors were auctioned off to the highest bidder. Each bachelor came complete with his own date package. The packages did not have to be used with the bachelor and included kayaking trips, private jet and plane rides, personal training, scuba adventures, and many other impressive activities.

Josh Cohen himself was bachelor number 11, and sold for the evenings record bid of $2,400. His package included an all day yacht party for the bidder and five friends, amongst other enticing prizes.

By the end of the night, the event had raised over ten-thousand dollars between the bachelor auction, door donations, and silent bid contributions. At that time took to the stage and handed the event hostess Valerie, an over-sized check representing their additional ten-thousand dollar contribution.
