Some 250 spectators and bidders turned out for Saturday’s 2011 Best Gay Bachelors Auction to see Fenuxe magazine’s 10 reader-chosen hunks on the auction block to put some cash into AID Atlanta’s coffers.
Fenuxe’s current issue profiles the local gay hunks who got the most votes in an online poll. The 2011 Best Gay Bachelors are Andrew Velez, Broc Martin, Brooks Smith, Chandler Bearden, Davis Petway, Jay Dempsey, Joe Cantona, John-Paul Griffin, Justin Ziegler and Will Rumfelt.
Kai Lin Art Gallery hosted Saturday’s event, which raised $6,000 for the beneficiary through bids on date packages with the bachelors.
The evening’s top bidder, Bill Chiou, not only receives his date with bachelor Broc Martin, he also gets 25,000 Sky Miles courtesy of Delta Airlines. As the bachelor receiving the highest Bid—$1,250—Martin receives 10,000 Sky Miles from Delta.
Local drag fundraiser extraordinaire Bubba D. Licious emceed the auction and worked the crowd to maximize the donation to AID Atlanta.
Fenuxe plans to host several events in 2011 that celebrate milestones or work in conjunction with special editions of its magazine. Look for the Fire Party, the magazine’s first anniversary celebration, in late April.
