WARWICK – Single and looking for the love of your life?

Children’s Wishes will hold its fourth annual Dream Date auction on May 16 at Ri Ra Irish Pub in Providence.

Eligible bachelors and bachelorettes will be auctioned off by hosts Michaela Johnson of Fox Providence’s “The Rhode Show” and Cardi’s Furniture Ben DeCastro.

The winning bidders for each bachelor and bachelorette will win a ‘dream date.’ Tickets for the event are $10 and that includes appetizers, drink specials, raffles, and more.

The event will benefit Children’s Wishes, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Funds raised at this event will help the nonprofit prepare its upcoming wish-granting season.

Children’s Wishes says there have been successful love stories as a result of the auction and that they are still welcoming bachelors and bachelorettes to participate. For more information, visit
