A handful of bachelorettes looking for someone to put a ring on it were prepping for a quasi-blind date as the good-natured participants in The Dating Game Pittsburgh, held at Bossa Nova on Tuesday.

Marla Palermo, Clara Gonzalez, Katie Kulick, Gina Plocki and Leanne Santiago were among those dishing out as much as bachelors Adam Korba and Dan Hazelbaker could take in front of an audience egged on by Sheldon Ingram.

“It's for charity, so it's good. You do what you do to make it a fun evening,” Ingram said.

The event, which raised funds for Cystic Fibrosis, was cooked up by Erica Menendez on behalf of 50 Finest honoree Jackie Allenberg, who was nervously awaiting the auction portion of the evening ... in which she was the one up for grabs.

“No!” she exclaimed, when asked whether she was ready to be auctioned off.

Rumor had it that a backup plan was in place lest the winning bid come from unwelcome territory, although the singles seemed to take it all in stride.
