Meet Our 2010 Top Singles

 

After dressing to impress in fashions from local shops, 14 of the area’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes gathered at downtown’s Hotel Duval to show off their new looks for the photo essay in this issue.

It’s all to build excitement for Tallahassee Magazine’s 2010 Top Singles Party and Date Auction starting at 8 p.m. July 16 at Hotel Duval. And you’re invited.

Each of the singles, selected because of their magnetic personalities, inspiring lifestyles and community involvement, has agreed to enjoy a lunch date with the highest bidder — with the auction proceeds donated to his or her favorite charity.

Whether you’re bidding for your ideal date or just enjoying the party and the view from atop the hotel, it promises to be one of 2010’s most memorable summer nights in Tallahassee. Even those in happily committed relationships are eligible to win the evening’s grand prize — a coastal vacation with complimentary use of a stunning 2010 BMW 3 Series convertible.
