Will You Accept This Rose?

| September 28, 2011 | Parties

THE PLAYERS Trista Sutter and Molly Mesnick, former contestants from ABC’s The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, teamed up with eDrop-Off’s Corri McFadden to auction off pieces from more than 30 contestants’ rose ceremonies, first dates and reunions as seen on TV. Items included rose ceremony dresses both Sutter and Mesnick wore with their now-husbands Ryan and Jason, as well as Ed Swiderski’s infamous green shorts (as seen on a date with former fiancĂ©e Jillian Harris). Other contestants who donated included fan favorite Emily Maynard, Ashley Herbert and Sarah Brice. THE SCENE The hosts celebrated the finale of the seven-day auction with a party at Rockit Bar & Grill. Sipping on Ketel One cosmopolitans and surrounded by mannequins dressed in the auction items, 100 guests mingled and snapped photos with their favorite bachelors and bachelorettes. Sticking to the style of the television series, eDrop-Off handed out roses to the guests. THE BOTTOM LINE The auction raised more than $10,000, and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross. Photos by Barry Brecheisen
