If you're a single lady looking for a date and also want to help raise money for a good cause there's an event for you.

It's the fourth annual "Gilda's Guys" event, a bachelor auction to benefit Gilda's Club Rochester. Gilda's Club is a community where people with cancer and their loved ones can meet others for support.

There are 25 eligible bachelors who will be auctioned off on Thursday, March 28 at the Harro East Ballroom as part of the event.

Some of the bachelors have actually set up their own sponsor pages, where friends and family can sponsor them for the auction. The bachelors will do a meet and greet at 6 p.m. and the auction will start at 8 p.m.

All proceeds go directly to Gilda's Club. They have already raised more than $3,000 in just a couple of weeks. Last year the event raised more than $17,000.

On Wednesday Erin Julian from Gilda's Club joined News10NBC's Lia Lando to talk about the event.
