Area Bachelors Worked It Out
First Annual Bachelor Auction A Big Success
EspreeNet News Service
Syracuse, NY (ENet News) - The First Annual Bachelor Auction presented by BC Productions and EVT1 LLC was a big hit Saturday night at Lemoyne Manor. This year some of the proceeds will benefit the CNY chapter of the NAACP ACT-SO program.
The event was designed with the concept of the televised "Bachelor" series in mind, according to Erin Smith of BC Productions. With that, they brought on the experienced event planning and management company EVT1 with Nicole Jones and just made it happen.
There were several no show bachelors but no one seem to notice once the event began. They mingled with over 100 women for 45 minuets, took the stage individually to describe themselves, and returned in tuxedos for the bidding process.
For those who provided the highest bid, they received a date package ranging from a golf outing to a dinner cruise.
There were several intense bidding wars going left to right and front to back that made the night memorable for everyone involved. "It was good to see everyone having fun" said Jerome Espree president of EspreeNet Services (the company that publishes SoulofSyracuse.com), "As a sponsor you want your company to be apart of special events that benefit good causes".
Everyone involved was happy with the event, the bachelors, attendees, sponsors, and venders. We received "nothing but positive feedback" said Smith and people are already asking about next years event.
"I am so happy that the event was a success! Congratulations to Erin and Nicole."
