The Urban League of Rochester’s Black Young Professionals (BYP) organization is in its sixth year of hosting their annual date night auction. The event is held to raise money for Urban League’s Black Scholars Program. To date, the young professionals group has raised over $20,000 for the Black Scholars Program. Proceeds from the auction benefit the operations of the Black Scholars Program. The Black Scholars Program helps to link African American high school seniors to over $2.5 million in scholarships each year.
This year’s auction will be on Saturday, March 31 at the Stardust Ballroom located at 41 Backus Street. BYP is expecting roughly 150 other young professionals to network, fellowship and have fun while supporting a worthy cause. There will be hors d’ovueres, music, vendors and a cash bar. Tickets can be purchased online at www.rocbyp.org.
How does the auction work? It’s simple! Once you purchase your ticket for the event, you’ll prepare to get fly! Then, on Saturday, you’ll head over to the Stardust Ballroom to bid on some of Rochester’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes. Get your cash ready and bid on the contestants you admire (or support) for a friendly date!
