Then we have just the event for you: The 2006 International Bachelor Auction, this Sunday, September 10, at Pier One‘s Monsoon Bar. You can bid on a date with one (or more) of 20 eligible bachelors. All proceeds go to a great cause — Shanghai Second Chance Animal Aid — at a time when China’s animals could sure use some aid. Admission is RMB 300 if you buy your tickets before Thursday, and RMB 350 after. That price includes a “walking dinner” (we assume that means a buffet) and two drinks.
Here is a note from one of the event’s organizers:
How it works is that the bachelor has a few minutes to introduce themselves (after having milled around socializing beforehand), then women bid. Once “won”, the bachelor chooses from a raffle a voucher for dinner/brunch. They arrange the time/date. If the woman backs out, bachelor gets to keep the voucher himself.
Some of the Shanghai restaurants that have donated vouchers include: Kathleen’s, Laris, A Future Perfect, Azul, Indian Vintage, Senses, M on the Bund, Aegean, 239, Indalo and Omalley’s.
We have been told that they already have enough bachelors, but if you would like to be put on the substitute list, you can contact them at 13818627235, 138178114433 or [email protected]
