Date a Marine! (Date Auction)

I have been informed that the poor Marines need to raise money to afford tickets for their yearly Marine Corps Birthday Ball. You are not buying a date to the Ball, however.

Entry is free, but you can get a $5 wristband for drink specials. Starting bids are $10. There's about 20 guys and a few ladies on the auction block, so far. Looks like you get a $50 certificate towards dinner in DC if you win a date. http://www.facebook.com/USMCDet2DateAuction2014

Enjoy! Let me know if you hit it off with your Marine.

    I'm curious about the 3 star rating. What didn't people like? What did people like?

      I wasn't there but I'll take a guess that it was horribly organized and there were very few participants (based on the Facebook page)...

      I thought it was organized and it was fun- unfortunately, for the first 6 people, no one was really bidding. I wasn't going to do it, but I felt bad the majority of the spectators weren't participating (although they might have been holding out for someone else- I left early). Once we got a date, it took a long time to check out because we had to track down our Marine for their contact info.

    Running a little late but definitely will be there. Let's keep everyone posted on out location. It seems like there's no host on this event.

    I'm not going to be able to make it which is a huge bummer because I went to the sunset parade last night and the marines were absolutely yummy!!

    Looking forward to meeting all of you. I'm sure we will get a little sugar rush from all the eye candy, I mean the fruity cocktails. Hahaha :0)

    Hello! I am the one who has organized this event for my USMC unit in Anacostia, D.C. The location has been changed to Sign of the Whale (a few doors down from the Might Pint). I am sorry for the short notice; I myself, also, just found out. I cannot wait to see all of you there! It is sure to be a great time! -Cat :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
