Hello all PUA members,

Tomorrow (Saturday) is our annual charity event. 100% of all funds collected during this event are donated to charity!

See the event details: The PUA Gala-Ball - Dance, Have Fun… (http://www.meetup.com/parisurbanadventures/calendar/10105498/)

There will be a bachelor and bachelorette auction. Come on down and bid on a stylish lady or gentlemen for your next date...and help charity at the same time!

Here are some answers about this for those interested...

Don't be shy...come on down and bid. :) It will be loads of fun.
Bidding starts at 5 euros...and goes to...?
The auction will be in French and English (two presenters working together).
If you bid and win, you get to meet and greet them, and you then take them out on a date in the next couple of weeks. You pay. The date must be in a public place unless they agree to something different with you.
Bring cash...we do not have a credit-card machine. Though, if for some reason the bidding went really high we would figure something out as we don't expect people to carry 100's of euros around.
The auction will begin about 10:30-10:45pm. After the quiz. The party starts at 8pm though...so come on down sooner, and meet the bachelors and bachelorettes.
Yes...we mean it...100% of all money obtained (at the door to enter, for drinks, the auction) goes to charity. See our fundraising page here (http://tinyurl.com/pua-fundraising).
Just bring what you're willing to donate/bid, and only bid to that amount. This way you don't go over your budget.

Who will our fabulous bachelors and bachelorettes be?

This fine lady goes by Heather Stimmler-Hall (since Paris Hilton is already taken).

Heather has been a professional travel writer and guidebook author since 1999, Paris correspondent for EasyJet in-flight magazine, editor of the Secrets of Paris website, author of the Naughty Paris Guide, and a private tour guide. Born in Philly, raised in Arizona, schooled at Carleton College in Minnesota (Political Science and Environmental Policy studies) and living in France (Paris and Côte d'Azur) since 1995. She has two miniature pinschers, Pedro & Lena.

This cute hunk goes by Peter, or Pietro to his friends.
Those too shy to bid in public can contact him at: [masked]

Originally from England Peter lived in Italy for many years, and now lives in France to be between the two. Peter is into sports and running, and is training for a marathon.

This fun and funky chica goes by Kylie Mac.

She grew up in Michigan and worked in video production for nearly 10 years before moving to Paris, and is now finishing a Masters Degree in English Literature and writing a thesis involving Frankenstein and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

This outgoing Brit goes by Hooty McBoob. Kidding! This is Nick!
29, Male, originally from Surrey close to London, he moved to Paris to work for Orange and has no intentions of moving back! He has a tranquil apartment with garden in the 15th with ample supplies of wine and a big comfortable bed ;) A little known fact about Nick is that he very rarely wears underwear. (Generally only for work and sporting activities).

This little hottie for the evening is Silvia.

A sassy and energetic girl from Ecuador, she was raised with a Sex-n-the-City heart in New York before moving to Paris near two years ago on a permanent work contract.

Our final bachelor of the night is Andy.

Andy is an English gentleman (well kind of!) living in Paris. He loves the outdoors, travelling to visit ancient cultures and taking on new challenges but is equally comfortable curled up with a good book and a glass of wine with a view over Paris.

Bachelor and Bachelorette auction provided for the charity event by Paris Urban Adventures (http://www.parisurbanadventures.org) and Gadabout Paris. (http://www.gadaboutparis.com)
