On Saturday night, the Rogue Valley's most eligible bachelors strutted their stuff for the third annual Sanctuary One Bachelor Auction. It's a fundraiser for the nation's first ever care farm for abused and neglected animals located right here in the Applegate Valley. It's also the sanctuary that helped rehabilitate Meshach the cat and find him a loving home.
The live auction attracted ladies of all ages. And with proceeds benefitting the animals at Sanctuary One, ladies were more than happy to bid on a date with one of the 24 bachelors. NBC5's own Austin Reed was a bachelor in last year's auction, where he met his now fiancee. They say they're proof that the event can be a match maker. NBC5's prime time anchor, Laura Cavanaugh, emceed the sold-out event. Organizers say this year's turnout was just as good, if not than better, than last year.
