The Last Resort, a Carolina Beach Bar, announces the 1st Annual “Save The Ta -Ta’s - Bachelor Auction for Breast Cancer Awareness.” For some it’s celebration of living life cancer free, and for others it will bring about awareness of options for early Breast Cancer screening initiatives. The Last Resort is a membership club of local people helping a local organization fight a world wide problem – Breast Cancer, Said Kim Lewis, The Last Resort. We have joined forces with several other local businesses on Pleasure Island and surrounding area businesses, with the sole purpose of raising funds for breast cancer awareness and assistance. In a world none too untouched by the prevalence of cancer, it is a rewarding when members of a community come together out of pure compassion simply to help make a difference and offer support. The Last Resort, a Carolina Beach Bar, and its members are compassionate people who are zealous about making lasting connections while serving others in need. Breast Cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio economic status, or geographical location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. However, the key to saving lives is early detection. For this reason, we have decided to donate the proceeds of our Bachelor Auction to Coastal Care Van.

NHRMC Coastal Care Van provides uninsured women with the opportunity to receive a mammography and support. This is the areas only mobile cancer screening van. The success of the Coastal Care Van project has not only provided early diagnosis and comfort to hundreds of area women, but has helped save lives. This is an important service because many women fail to get regular mammograms simply because they have no insurance or cannot afford the expensive testing. Early detection is critical in the fight for breast cancer.

“We wanted to put together a fun, friendly, accessible event,” Kim Lewis, shareholder in The Last Resort explains. “We want to bring together our members, and the community for a great cause and a exciting event, rather than just hold out our hands and ask for money!” The event’s main beneficiary is NHRMC’ Coastal Care Van (CCV), a paramount program for victims of breast cancer working tirelessly to provide mammograms for local women who otherwise could not afford them. CCV also provides “comfort bags’ for local women with breast cancer, filled with consoling and useful items. We selected the Coastal Care Van because it is local and we would rather see the money raised donated to a local cause rather than give a check to a national organization.

With The Last Resort leading the charge, the idea of a Pleasure Island Bachelor Auction came about several months ago, and the event quickly formed as eligible bachelors signed up to be auctioned off. “Several of our members are breast cancer survivors, or have loved ones who have suffered from breast cancer, so it really hits home for us. We thought that a Bachelor Auction would be a fun way to get local involvement where our members and citizens of Pleasure Island can come out and help fight breast cancer.” Said Kim Lewis.

Included in the night’s events will be a DJ starting at 6:00 p.m. Adding to the festivities; door prizes, raffles and give-a-ways and of course pink drink specials. “Save The Ta Ta’s, The Last Resorts 1st Annual Bachelor Auction,” is offers guests an evening of fun, laughter and fundraising…

Here’s How It Works: Approximately 12 unmarried men from throughout Wilmington and the Pleasure Island area will be strutting their stuff, donating a night on the town to the highest bidder, all for a great cause. Ranging in age from their mid-20s to their early-60s, these men-about-town each come bearing unique prize packages they have assembled themselves, meaning that the women in the audience will be “winning” not just the pleasure of a given bachelor’s company but an exciting assortment of dining and/or entertainment options, getaways and more. We’ve found a diverse cross –section of single unmarried men from across the area.”

This fun-filled evening is open to everyone, and also features drawings and door prizes — so even if you’re not in the market for a bachelor at the moment, you can still take part in the action. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event’s live auction will go to the Coastal Care Van.

Lewis adds. “If you would like to make a donation of some sort because you cannot attend our event, you can always come by The Last Resort and drop it off ahead of time. Any little bit will help the cause.” Recognizing that supporting one another, giving back to the community and remembering all our friends and loved ones who suffer from breast cancer is the reason for this event. All donations are welcome and appreciated!
