Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction: Upping the Ante

The Residence Life Team at Ryerson University is planning to hold their fourth annual Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction on the evening of Saturday, March 3, 2012. The Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction is one of Ryerson Residence’s largest residence-wide events. The annual event aims to support a charity of choice by raising money through having staff and students volunteer themselves to be “auctioned” off. Residents will place bids on so-called “bachelors” and “bachelorettes” and the winning bidder will be rewarded a free or discounted “date” with the bachelor/bachelorette he/she has bid on. Various local businesses, such as restaurants, coffee shops and movie theaters, donate gift cards or coupons for their service or attraction as prizes for the event.


This year, all the proceeds from the event will be donated to Covenant House (www.covenanthouse.ca), Canada’s largest youth shelter. Homelessness is an issue that is very prominent in downtown Toronto and the students living in Ryerson’s residences hope to contribute to the cause to house homeless youth. Typically, the event has raised approximately $1, 200.


The event will have a casino theme and carries the subtitle, “Upping the Ante.” The auction will begin at 7PM and is being catered by Sensational Catering. Please join us on this day to support the students and Covenant House.
