4th Annual “Singles for Switchboard” Live Bachelor Auction, Brickell’s largest and most fun fundraising event, benefiting Switchboard of Miami, returned to Conrad Miami offering a chance to bid on a date with one of Miami’s most handsome bachelors. Hosted by Switchboard’s Women’s Leadership Council in partnership with Brickell Magazine, the 4th Annual Singles for Switchboard Bachelor Auction featured Miami’s most eligible bachelors, including attorneys, doctors and business executives.
The event attended hundreds of women from Miami’s business community seeking to support Switchboard, while enjoying a great time and meeting accomplished bachelors. This year host was Maria Mas Blet, Managing Principal/CEO at GSK Wealth Advisors Inc., one of the community’s leading women in business.
“We look forward to seeing Miami’s business and philanthropic community support with their sponsorship and attendance the city’s most fun and unique fundraising event,” said Marina Foglia, Co-Chair of Switchboard’s Women’s Leadership Council. “The funds raised support the counseling and help that Switchboard provides to thousands of residents in need in our community.”
Switchboard of Miami counsels, connects and empowers people in need, taking from its call center in Downtown Miami over 200,000 calls each year. Through its 2-1-1 helpline, Switchboard services communities in Miami-Dade, Monroe County and responds to Spanish-speaking callers from across the US. The organization provides an umbrella of services, including suicide prevention, telephone reassurance program for seniors, youth development in the schools, and family counseling services.
This year’s bachelor auction had an exciting new twist, as the winning bidders get a “date experience” that already comes with the bachelor, increasing the stakes even more. The date experiences include a sunset cruise through Biscayne Bay or watching a Miami Heat game from the premium Dewar’s Clubhouse, all while donating to a grand cause. In recompense for their participation, all bachelor participants will receive well-deserved features in Brickell Magazine, in conjunction with the event.
Thanks to wonderful sponsorships in the past, the Singles for Switchboard Bachelor Auction continues to be an incredible success. Sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses seeking to support this great cause who get the opportunity to receive brand exposure and recognition in all promotional and marketing materials associated with the event, as well as at the live bachelor auction.
