Savannah Jaycee's host date night auction to raise money for good cause

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Twenty-five eligible bachelors and bachelorettes were auctioned off Thursday night for a great cause.

The Savannah Jaycee’s hosted the second Charity Date Auction. All of the money raised from the event will benefit the Savannah Jaycee’s two service partners: Heads Up Guidance Services Inc. and the Compassionate Friends of Savannah.

"It's really awesome that we get to do something fun like this to raise money. We are not just asking for people to break out their checkbooks and give us money. We are actually making it fun and enjoyable. Local restaurants and businesses around town have really stepped up and done what they can to help us out and help make this happen,” said Lauren Matthews, event coordinator.

The amount raised from the date auction is still being tallied. Last year, they raised nearly $7,000.
