As a single girl in a city where the women seem to outnumber men, I was a little disappointed to have been out of town when the Bachelor Bid Bash happened at the Music Farm this summer. But maybe it was for the best. Maybe it was fate. Because the Charleston Outlaws Rugby Football Club are holding their own bachelor auction at the Farm, and ... well ... they’re freakin’ rugby players (plus soldiers, firemen, and police officers). I can save up my happy hour money for a week and choose from Tyler, Joey, Brian, or one of the many other guys that are participating. 95.1’s Brooke Ryan will emcee the event, and Channel 4’s Tom Crawford will serve as the auctioneer. Tara Lynn from News 2 and current Miss Charleston Valerie Kobrovsky will also be on hand, and there’ll be live music from Calhoun’s Calling after all the men are purchased. The night benefits not one, but six local organizations: Ralph Johnson VA Health Center, MUSC’s Children’s Hospital, MUSC Hollings Cancer Research Center, Habitat for Humanity, Pet Helpers, and the Carolina Youth Development Center. If you’d rather not go on a date with a total stranger, check out the Outlaws’ website (charlestonrugby.com) for profiles and the chance to see your special fella in a clown costume. —Susan Cohen
