Guys Who Give

What's better than walking into a room of eligible bachelors on your night out on the town? It's the jackpot and is exactly the type of environment that Valerie Fiordilino has worked so hard to perfect over the past five years. Fiordilino lost her father to leukemia in 2009 and has made raising funds for research a top priority. All of the proceeds from this benefit will go to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and since the issue is so close to Fiordilino's heart, she pulls out all the stops to ensure that this event will rake it in. The bachelors are always such a smash that this year, guest bachelorettes have been added to the mix. If you are lucky enough to earn the winning bid, get ready for an incredible date, because the packages include everything from a private plane ride to a spa package. The event also packs a bit of star power with major local radio personalities Josh Cohen and Virginia Sinicki taking on hosting duties and bringing attention to this important cause. There is no other fundraiser that packs so much fun into something so important -- it's the perfect chance to see some hotties and save some lives. The fifth-annual Bachelor Auction for Blood Cancer starts at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Cabo Flats, located at 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens. Tickets are available for $30 in advance or $40 at the door. Call 561-632-6036, or visit the event page on Facebook.
