Last night, Austin Monthly readers got the chance to mingle with this year’s most eligible bachelors and bid generously on fabulous prizes in the name of charity. Held at the W Austin, the Bachelor Issue Release Party and Auction raised more than $12,000 for The Shade Project, a charity that builds shaded playgrounds to help reduce skin cancer in children.
Our own Mike Golden was featured as one of the eligible bachelors and fetched more than $1,700 for his Lake Austin Getaway package. Friends and family showed their support with their attendance and enthusiasm, and egged on the audience to increase their bids. We’re very proud of Mike and congratulate him on his terrific spirit and success in helping protect kids from the sun to prevent skin cancer!

Congratulations to Mike Golden, Partner, of Boulette& Golden, LLP for being named one of Austin’s most eligible bachelors by Austin Monthly for the 9th Annual Austin Monthly Bachelor Release and Party benefiting the Shade Project on August 7th.
Ever the philanthropist, Mike agreed to participate in the event to help raise funds for a good cause, “As somebody who spends a lot of time in the sun, I have a tremendous amount of respect for the Shade Project’s mission to help kids take early steps to prevent skin cancer. I think when I agreed to be featured, though, Jason [Boulette] thought maybe I had spent too much time in the sun.”
