ARLINGTON — Locals hoping to go on a fun date with an eligible bachelor or bachelorette, while benefiting a good cause, need look no further than Arlington’s Forever Lust Auction on Aug. 17 at the Gleneagle Golf Course.
Ten bachelors and bachelorettes, all local men and women, will be auctioned off with a romantic date night package at the event to raise money for Queen, It’s A New Day.
Queen, It’s A New Day is a local nonprofit organization that helps abused or battered women to be “transformed from devastation to empowerment and self sufficiency.”
The auction serves as a fundraiser for the organization, which also helps local women get access to services, job skills training, clothes and more. Larissa Long, Mrs. Pacific Northwest is scheduled to act as master of ceremonies for the auction.
“We are also auctioning off 15 date night packages, for people who are already dating someone, during our silent auction,” said Emily Peterson, manager of A Beautiful Addiction Tanning Salon and auction coordinator.
Tickets for this years’ event are available for purchase at Gutierrez Family Chiropractic, A Beautiful Addiction Tanning Salon and AmericanWest Bank in Everett. The cost of the tickets are $15 for presale, $20 at the door and $25 for a VIP ticket. The VIP reception begins at 6 p.m. and includes a meet and greet with the eligible men and women as well as appetizers. The auction is scheduled for 7 p.m. A dessert buffet will be included in the price of the tickets and seating is limited. Must be 21 and older to attend.
