of Parkinson’s Disease, the debilitating neurological disease that
strikes nearly 1.5 million people in the United States.
In Princeton several young men are using one of their assets —
bachelorhood — to bring an awareness of Parkinson’s Disease to
the community and raise money for research. The Parkinson Alliance,
a fundraising unit founded by Margaret Tuchman

Elvis Costello, and traveling to exotic places. He’s looking for an
intelligent and fun woman, someone to whom he feels a spiritual connection.

There’s a man for everyone in this batch. "They’re all friends
of friends," says Allison Miller
Opinion Research, who is organizing event and found the bachelors.
"We’ve set it up so that each bachelor comes with a package, which
includes dinner at one of the nicer restaurants like Acacia, Lahiere’s,
and La Fontana, and then we’ve also included other gifts like massages
or a gift basket. The men are just a bonus."
The bachelor packages themselves are worth on average about $200,
but the bidding will begin at around $50. "It is a charitable
event, most people aren’t expecting fireworks, but it’s meant to be
fun," adds Miller. If the men don’t suit your tastes, however,
there will also more than 100 exciting gifts to bid on, from a one-year
lease for a 2000 Volkswagen Beetles to a week’s stay in the Poconos,
as well as jewelry and artwork. Tickets cost $50, and include hors
d’oeuvres, dinner, dessert, music, and valet parking. Call 609-921-1696.
