#CitizenGulf National Day of Action is TOMORROW! And since everyone has been showing how big their hearts are by supporting #CitizenGulf and making a difference for families in the Gulf, we ought to give those hearts a little something back…
Announcing the #CitizenGulf #DateAuction!
Featuring DC’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes! Bidding will start at $5 – not necessarily because our singles are worth that much, but because we want to make sure there’s no weird financial pressure involved so that everyone can have a good time.
All you have to do to bid is be there. The easiest way to do that is to click the button below.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please bring cash! We will have a form on-site to get contact information for auction bidders who wish to receive a tax-deductible receipt from Citizen Effect. After you’re done reading, we’ve embedded a map of ATMs located near Washington, DC, for your convenience, trust me… you’ll want to date these folks ;)
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow! Thank you for your support!
Without further ado – Meet out bachelors and bachelorettes!!
Alison kicks ass and often takes names – but only in the form of Twitter handles. She bleeds red, not because it’s normal, but because she’s from Massachusetts and a wicked die-hard Red Sox fan. So if you prefer pinstripes, you shouldn’t bother bidding. Ok, well since this is for charity, Yankees fans can bid, but they have to pay double. When she’s not managing marketing and communications for GlobalGiving, Alison likes to perform improv and karaoke, but also likes to channel her inner Liz Lemon and watch primetime cable news and do crossword puzzles. Fair warning, your date will inevitably have its own hashtag and be livetweeted.
Sterling is 29 years old. He is 6ft tall, has black hair, dark brown eyes, and a smile that shines so bright, it does his name justice. He is a software engineer and senior consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton. He is well-versed in IT technologies including Java/Java EE, JSP, XML, XHTML, SQL, C++, PHP & MySQL, DB2, Microsoft: SharePoint Portal Server, ASP.NET, C# — and is looking for someone who can complement his analytical and coding skills. Sterling is fluent in binary code, but this Aries is even more fluent in the language of love.
Despite his Asian heritage Patrick wouldn’t call himself a Social Media ninja. This Boston native has a driver’s license says he’s 5’10″ but insists he’s 5 feet, 10 and a half inches. Patrick is social media flack at New Media Strategies and is a writer for We Love DC. When he’s not winning over clients and readers he’s winning the hearts of patrons as a professional stage manager. Don’t worry however, this dark and handsome gentleman leaves drama at the door, he’s a lover- not a fighter after all.
Hailing originally from New Jersey, Genevieve lives in DC and is a public affairs specialist for the United States Mint. Just graduated with her Master’s from Georgetown this spring she has lots of time on her hands to shop for shoes, watch bad Vince Vaughn movies, and read the Sunday Washington Post. She likes a good bottle of Pinot Noir or an ice-cold Stoli martini after work or while cooking dinner for her friends…or anytime really. A soccer-player and a jock at heart, Genevieve loves to root for the hometown boys, the Caps, Nationals and DC United but left her football loyalty in Chicago with the Bears and Brian Urlacher. At 5’7″ with dark brown eyes, and brown curly hair, she has an infectious laugh that would fit in at any comedy club in DC. Having acquired her first bicycle without streamers, a flowered basket, or a banana seat she’s looking for a fellow foodie with whom she can explore DC’s bike trails and other undiscovered nooks and crannies.
Toby has been in the Advertising / Communication industry for more than five years. With a bachelor’s degree in Creative Advertising Art Direction from VCU, this creative renaissance man has worked with national accounts and local non-profits. He currently serves as Communications Director for a DC-based non-profit that teaches film-making to underserved youth as a means for them to tell their story. He likes a dirty goose martini after a long day, dislikes debbie-downers & nay-sayers, believes in magic, and has an affinity toward great typography.
Alex is the college boy you’ve always wanted. He’s a real American man, pursuing two degrees in marketing and communications at the prestigious American University right here in Washington, D.C. A true networker, Alex has built a reputation for his social media prowess and is well known for being one of the best-looking avatars in Twitter-feeds around the city. He’s looking for someone who can match his social nature and non-stop, outgoing and ambitious personality. His Klout score may be only 70, but in love he’s nothing less than a perfect 100.
I told you. To the ATM you go!
