Singles Appreciation Day Date Auction & After Party!


This event is now sold out - and we will not be selling any tickets at the door. If you bought a ticket to attend this event - here's what to expect below.

When Should I Arrive? Arrive at the Aloft Hotel between 7:30 and 8:00 PM. The Aloft Hotel is located at 1001 South Hamilton Road, Chapel Hill, NC. When you arrive you must park at the SECU building across the street - don't worry, they wont tow you. Hotel Parking is for Hotel Guests only.

Where Do I Check In? When you arrive at the Aloft you will see a check-in table at the the front of the lobby. Walk up and give us the name that's on your paypal account. After we've checked you in, we'll give you a wristband.

When Does the Auction Start? End? The auction will start promptly at 8:30 PM and end by 10 PM.

When Does the After Party Start? End? The after party starts at 10 PM and ends at 11 PM. You are welcome to stick around the aloft later, but I'll be heading out at 11 PM.

Will There Be Alcohol at this Event? Since this event is being co-hosted by the Aloft Hotel, there will be a full bar at your disposal. I also hear that Wednesday is 1/2 Bottle of Wine Night - so be sure to take advantage of that!

Who Is Being Auctioned Off? See the bios of our Auctionees below!

How Does The Auction Work? There will be 8 Men and 8 Women up for auction. The starting bid will be $5 and will raise in $5 increments.

How Do I Win a Date?
Make sure you grab a bidding paddle from the check-in desk before bidding begins. When you would like to bid on someone, simply raise the paddle and wait to be awknowldged - you will keep doing that until you win the date or until you don’t want to bid anymore. Bidding will be in $5 increments.

What Happens After I Win a Date?
After you are deemed the winner of the auction, please proceed to the check in desk and pay by either
cash or check. You will be asked to sign a general release form and we will write you out a tax-deductible receipt.

What Do I Get if I Win a Date?
When you win a Date with an Auctionee you will get their contact information and get to take them on a
Date! You and your Date will be responsible for setting up the details - day, time, etc. Master Dater will be providing you with free goodies that can be used on your date including free bowling passes, a Tomato Jakes Gift Certificate and VIP passes to Rum Runners. As you are the winner, and your date is your prize, you will be expected to cover the costs of your date. Please note that on the date, you will be receiving the pleasure of your date’s company and nothing more ;)

Can I win a date with more than one person?
Yes you can! But don’t go crazy, please limit yourself to no more than 3 dates :)

What's Planned for the After Party? Immediately after the date auction we'll have a mix n' mingle after party. Music will be playing and there will be plenty of drinking (responsibly, of course) and dancing. If you get too tipsy, remember, you can always get a room at the aLoft for the night.

**Because of this event's popularity, please note that this event has been cross-posted to give more people a chance to attend. To avoid multiple emails about this event in the future, please RSVP either 'Yes' or 'No'**

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
