Bachelor Auction slated for Thursday

This is no time to be shy; it's time to buy yourself a date.

A dozen dates will be auctioned off Thursday during the second-annual Bachelor Auction to benefit Health Care Access.

One of the available dates includes getting a spa manicure, being escorted in a new car donated from Jim Clark Motors, eating a sunset dinner, compliments of the Lawrence Country Club, and taking a nighttime airplane flight.

The auction, which will be staged at JB Stouts, 721 Wakarusa Drive, features male and female from the Lawrence area. Previews begin at 6:30 p.m.; bidding starts at 7 p.m.

Health Care Access, 1920 Moodie Road, provides care for the uninsured of Douglas County.
