WHAT TO EXPECT
Make a date to save a life.
The Twin Cities’ most eligible Bachelors and Bachelorettes come together at the hottest singles charity event of the year. Picture it...a night filled with the most eligible, charity-minded singles all in one room. The excitement of the evening includes the infamous live auction, where each Bachelor and Bachelorette has created their own unique dream date for all to bid on.
Date For Life is so much more than just the live and silent auctions, mix and mingle activities, cocktails, appetizers and the live music entertainment by Minneapolis' own R-Factor -- it's an evening that is truly about raising awareness and support for Children's Cancer Research Fund. 100% of all proceeds are donated to CCRF to directly support the research so desperately needed for children battling cancer.
MARCH 9, 2019 - LET'S MAKE IT A DATE!
WHY DO WE DO IT?
Date For Life was created by Lynn Poferl and Sara Darling in memory of Lynn’s daughter, Katie Jurek, with the goal of helping children and families who are faced with the effects of childhood cancer. Both Lynn and Sara, having strong ties to the Twin Cities’ #1 matchmaking service, the duo decided that a Bachelor and Bachelorette auction was a perfect way to accomplish this goal and bring awareness to the important work being done by CCRF. Every year to honor Katie, Date For Life is a reminder of her strength during her battle with cancer.
Now in our 11th year of Date For Life, we are again planning to surpass our previous goals and raise even MORE money. In 2018, we raised $122,2015.31 for Children's Cancer Research Fund. This year, we hope to offer even more incredible auction items and experiences, as well as, unreal date packages to help us hit our goal.
Join us and help these kids get the treatment they need to keep fighting. All you need to do is MAKE IT A DATE - show up, have a great time and bid, bid, bid!
