About Barks, Babes & Bros
Salty Dog Paddle introduces the “Barks, Babes, & Brews” bachelor / bachelorette auction presented by South Florida Recording Artist Kendra Erika, with realty TV celebrities Prince Lorenzo Borghese and Ryan Beckett who are up for auction just in time for the holidays
In this inaugural fundraiser, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Salty Dog Paddle (Renegades Country Club is not keeping any portion), which will be used directly for the treatment of injured rescue dogs. According to event chair Clinton Cimring, “the event is the first of its kind for a venue like Renegades in that it is 100% volunteer-run and there is no financial contribution from Salty Dog towards expenses, which are all being covered by Renegades as well as sponsors and donors.”
The event will combine, for auction, some of the most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes in the United States. The featured celebrity bachelor up for auction at the event is Prince Lorenzo Borghese from the prominent Borghese family who is also a reality TV star and strong supporter for animal rights. He initially appeared on the 9th season of ABC’s The Bachelor and has starred on several TV shows since then. Following in suit of ABC Networks, is Ryan Beckett, who appeared on the 11th Season of ABC’s The Bachelorette. Complementing the pair of celebrity Bachelors is Kelly Hanner, Lifestyle Coach, motivational speaker, and CEO of Illuminate.
