On Wednesday, May 20, the 3rd annual Red Hot & In Style will be an opportunity for members of the LGBT community to bid on some of South Florida’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, while helping families who are dealing with serious illness.

A benefit for Deliver the Dream, the event, hosted by Electra, features local men and women who are bravely putting themselves on the auction block, offering an exciting first date to the highest bidder, with fun-filled date packages included. Red Hot & In Style takes place at 7 pm at the Village Pub, 2283 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors.

Bidding on a bachelor or bachelorette includes an entire date package. These range from show tickets and dinner, to a relaxing spa day, to fun concert tickets, to a private boat tour and many other exciting outings.

Whether you are looking for that special someone, or you just want to mix and mingle for a great cause, Red Hot & In Style promises to be a fun night out. Anyone can bid on the date packages, as the winner has the option to go on the date with the bachelor/bachelorette or take someone else on the date. The silent auction will also feature a wonderful variety of items.

All proceeds from the event directly fund Deliver the Dream’s specialized Family Retreat Program, serving families living with HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Autism, Cerebral Palsy and other life-changing illnesses and crises.Deliver the Dream doesn’t define the family unit and is proud to serve the gay and lesbian families in this community. Retreats happen every month, each inviting up to 15 families, free of charge, to get away from the stress of their everyday lives and connect with other families living with similar circumstances.

We are so proud to partner with the LGBT community, as Deliver the Dream's mission has always been inclusive of all families,” said Paul Withrow, executive director. “It takes a village to make our mission possible, and the generosity of our community helps us make a significant difference in the lives of countless families in crisis.”

The event is made possible through the generosity of sponsors: Neighborhood Market by Walmart, AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Alpine Jaguar, Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park, Principal Financial Group, Iberia Bank, PNC Bank, Gray Robinson, Sterling Tax and Accounting Services, Fred’s Security Services, Linda’s Idea, Hot Spots, SFGN, Mark’s List and OutClique.

There is no cover charge for the event so guests are encouraged to come out and be ready to bid on the ladies and gentlemen and their exciting date packages.
