Looking for love this Valentine’s Day?
Gwen Gioia, a past contestant of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelor Pad” and and Graham Bunn of “The Bachelorette” are here to help. They’ll be at a single’s mixer at East Andrews Cafe and Bar from 7 to 10 p.m. on Monday, which is Valentine’s Day, to kick off a contest organized by Heartbeat Matchmaker, a locally based dating service.
Heartbeat also plans single’s mixers from 3 to 8 p.m. Feb. 20 at 3 Sheets and from 3 to 7 p.m. Feb. 27 at the St. Regis.
The contest, with a $5,000 grand prize, is open to any single male or female who is 23 or older. There is a $75 application fee, which covers a criminal background check to ensure everyone’s safety. You’ll also need to submit two photos – a headshot and full-body shot – and a 250-word bio explaining why you’re a great catch.
Judges will declare a winning Bachelor and Bachelorette, but runners-up will receive prizes, too.
For information see the Heartbeat Web site.
