Houston has ITS list, Galveston has their list and NOW the Bay Area is going to have its list of Most Eligible Bachelors and Bachelorettes!

Nominations are being taken for single men and women who live in the cities of the Bay Area that are successful in their careers and are active in their community.

A fundraising event will be held on Thursday, Nov. 6 at Sundance Grill II benefitting The American Diabetes Association, featuring a presentation fashion show of the Bachelors and Bachelorettes. There will be a live auction for dates with the honorees. There will also be a surprise celebrity bachelor for one lucky bidder!

Over 30 million Americans have diabetes. Approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have Type 1 Diabetes and 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with Diabetes every year.

In October 2017 League City Mayor Pat Hallisey suffered two heart attacks caused by a loss of circulation in his legs from his uncontrolled diabetes. In order to save his life, doctors had to amputate one of his legs. After his near death experience, Mayor Hallisey has a new found respect for controlling his diabetes and his heroic efforts to fight for his health are inspiring. He will be at the event to introduce the honored Bachelors and Bachelorettes.
