For those of you new to Sacramento, #SMEBB stands for Sacramento’s Most Eligible Bachelor and Bachelorette.
#SMEBB is the opposite of a meat market – it’s a light-hearted fundraiser to benefit WEAVE (see more info below).
We’re looking for diverse nominees aged 25-45 that have legitimate careers, know how to have fun and enjoy meeting new people. We count 10+ marriages and over a dozen healthy/productive relationships under our #SMEBB belt.
Competition is fierce – we received over 130 nominations last year – so please be direct and concise. All nominations are anonymous, and we contact them to ensure they’re down to party with us and are available for the mixer and finale party (mandatory).
Deadline to nominate is 6:00pmPT on Thursday, March 23.

Party With A Purpose: WEAVE
We “party with a purpose” and are partnering again (for the 8th year in a row!) with WEAVE (Facebook, Twitter), which is the primary provider of crisis intervention services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Sacramento County. Through its involvement in the Rescue & Restore Coalition, WEAVE also provides outreach and services for international and domestic victims of human trafficking.
100% of the money raised from #SMEBB 2017 will go directly to WEAVE. That’s right. Every single dollar will benefit WEAVE’s annual “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” event, which features nearly 1,000 local men wearing RED high heels to raise awareness and funds against domestic violence and sexual assault. We raised over $11,000 in 2015, $15,000 in 2016 and our goal for 2017 is $20,000. So throw on your sassiest red dress and come out to support a great cause!
