Local women invited to bid on Miami’s most eligible bachelors

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, more than 50 of Miami’s most eligible bachelors will take the stage in a live auction with more than 400 women bidding for a chance to take them on a date, all while supporting a great cause.

Switchboard of Miami’s Women’s Leadership Council, in partnership with Brickell Magazine, presents “Singles for

Switchboard,” the second annual bachelor auction to raise funds for Switchboard’s programs and services. Founded in 1968, the Miami-based non-profit is the area’s leading provider of telephone counseling, information, referrals, mental health and crisis intervention services.

“Singles for Switchboard” will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at the Conrad Hotel Miami, 1395 Brickell Ave., Level 25, in Brickell. The dynamic event will feature a live auction with hundreds of professional and beautiful women bidding for a date with many of Miami’s most handsome and accomplished bachelors.

Hosted by Karent Sierra, a cast member of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Miami television series, the event promises to be full of fun, surprises and the opportunity to meet a match. The event will feature hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, music and great prizes.

“After a very successful inaugural bachelor auction last year, we are very excited about our second annual event which gives Miami bachelors and bachelorettes a chance to mingle, network and connect, while raising funds for Switchboard of Miami,” said Erbi Blanco-True, Switchboard of Miami Board member and chair of Switchboard’s Women Leadership Council.

Ms. Blanco-True came up with the event idea because her single friends were looking for ways to meet professional men, and she was looking for unique ways to raise funds.

“The real motivating force of this event is knowing funds raised will directly benefit the hundreds of individuals Switchboard helps on a daily basis.” she said.

Tickets for the event cost $45 for women and $75 for men and guests can register online. Registration at the door will cost $60 women and $90 men.
