Art House Productions raises $2,000 by auctioning talented Jersey City bachelors and bachelorettes

April 24, 2012, 9:07 PM
By Adam Robb/For The Jersey Journal

Wednesday night's Relay for Life benefit in Hoboken wasn't last week's only bachelor and bachelorette auction for a good cause. On Saturday night, 13 of Jersey City's most eligible went on the block in Hamilton Park to raise money for Art House Productions.

The night doubled as an opportunity for the available men and women to promote their own unique talents.

"We wanted to pick bachelors and bachelorettes who were entrepreneurs in Jersey City because we wanted to put a new spin on the auction fundraiser," Art House Productions founder Christine Goodman told us. "We wanted it to also be a promotional opportunity. People can talk about their businesses and what they do here."

Those skills included cooking lessons from Bar Majestic owner Joseph Castro, who used the stage as an opportunity to promote his forthcoming Barrio Bar Cevicheria, a Peruvian restaurant with rooftop Tiki bar opening later this summer on Newark Avenue; closet organizing from Anne McTernan, an interior designer by day, Marco & Pepe waitress by night; and a custom shirt from the well-tailored DeCarlos Morse of Decarlos Bespoke, one of the most pursued bachelors of the night.

But before the evening's emcee, Dancing Tony, called up the first lot, bachelorette Cealleigh Pender took the stage to perform with her band Folderol.

Pender, a California native who is now a massage therapist in Hamilton Park, moved to Jersey City two years ago and instantly found a home in Art House Productions, a non-profit, community performance space.

"And now, because I know two-thirds of the people being sold tonight, because I'm so active in the community myself, anytime I can help Art House raise money, I do it," Pender told us.

Local playwright Summer Dawn Hortillosa -- a former Jersey Journal reporter who now freelances for the paper -- has been involved with Art House Productions since high school and feels a similar bond.

"I saw that they were looking for people who were willing to help the arts by selling themselves and I thought hey that would be great," she said, attributing her emergence as an artist to Art House, where she staged Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night'' as a director at the age of 16.

Saturday night was only the second time Art House hosted a bachelor auction, their first having been in 2010 when they raised $1,600. This year, the group raised $2,000, in part due to the enthusiasm of the desired dates' willingness to do anything for a buck, no matter how humbling.

For Thomas John Carlson, the founder of Jersey City Art School, that meant doing a push-up for every dollar he wanted bidding to increase. For Hortillosa it was tap dancing with jazz hands. Maybe most torturous, McTernan had to confess to the crowd how seeing Snooki in Jersey City changed her life.

Who pays for the date, and does it depend on who dates who or do they just go dutch ? Are any of the contestants single and looking and will they be gender specific ?

If I am feeling lonely that night (and have the cash) I may just stop by. Sounds like a good time will be had by all.
