Volunteer bachelors and bachelorettes raised bucks for an HIV charity by auctioning dates with them to the highest bidder during an annual charity event at Blake's.

The 4th Annual Date for a Cause, hosted by the Georgia chapter of AT&T's LGBT employee resource group League, benefitted Someone Cares. The Atlanta-based HIV agency serves LGBT people, indigent, homeless and other high-risk LGBT populations.

Drag queen Edie Cheezburger emceed the event on Thursday. If you missed it, organizers launched an online campaign to raise even more for Someone Cares.
