Join The Other Bachelors Feb. 12 for “Cocktails with Chris”
While watching Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor starring Iowa farmer Chris Soules, I couldn’t help but think about how fun it would be to have my hair styled and then slip into stylish shoes for an evening inside a ballroom. This “dream” can become a reality for those fortunate enough to score tickets for an upcoming Iowa appearance by Soules and The Other Bachelors of Arlington.
Tickets are on sale now for “Cocktails with Chris Soules and the Other Bachelors of Arlington.” This once-in-a-lifetime evening is being presented by Hy-Vee on Feb. 12, beginning at 6 PM, in the Marriott Hotel ballroom, 1200 Collins Road Northeast, Cedar Rapids.
Place your order now as approximately 175 tickets remain. NOTE: 525 have already sold! It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, happily married or happily single. It doesn’t matter if you’re 21 or 81. It doesn’t even matter if you drink! Buy two tickets and grab your BFF or your BF (or husband) and head to the Marriott Hotel in Cedar Rapids.
Support Arlington as this small Northeast Iowa town wraps up its $1 million fundraising campaign. Proceeds from silent auction will benefit construction of the Arlington community center. Silent auction items include:
- two lower level tickets to an upcoming home Iowa State men’s basketball game
- Hawkeye-themed gift basket
- 20″ by 40″ framed print of Finally Payday by Charles Freitag
- 2-night stay at J&J Hideaway with gift certificates to local restaurants
- 4-hour boating package for 6 with Chris Soules
- Cooler filled with assorted meats from Edgewood Locker
- Dates with some of the 12 “Other Bachelors”
“As ladies browse the auction items, we hope they keep their significant others in mind,” says John Fedeler, Community Center Capital Campaign Committee member, who conceived the idea for The Other Bachelors of Arlington calendar. His oldest son, Jake Fedeler, is Mr. June. “There are some great auction items that would make wonderful Valentine’s Day gifts.”
Before you scoff at buying a sports package, remember that “recreational companionship” is a Top 5 need for the average red blooded male. (Yes, sporting events and active outings like hiking and biking are more than a “want” for many men. Recreation is a true “need.”) Studies show it’s important for married couples, as well as dating couples, to spend time together doing what makes them happiest.
In addition to winning bids on silent auction items, those in attendance at the Feb. 12th event can listen to live music by Beau Timmerman. Bachelor calendars will be available for purchase, plus there will be opportunities to get autographs and to take photos will the bachelors.
More information for auction items will be released next week, so check out The Other Bachelors of Arlington on Facebook for more details!
