Long Island, NY - CART Toyota Atlantic Championship driver Guy Cosmo will participate in "Steve & Maria's Bachelor Auction for Breast Cancer" on Friday, Oct. 26. The benefit is hosted by 106.1 WBLI, Long Island, NY. 24-year-old Guy Cosmo is a native of Long Island. The top-rated hit music station expects big bids for their bachelors when they put them on the block at Cyberia, a Farmingdale, NY hot spot. Cosmo, ready to stretch his social wings during the off-season, immediately jumped on the opportunity when asked to participate.

"I'll admit this wasn't my idea, but I think it's fantastic," grins Guy. "A friend heard about the promotion on WBLI and suggested that I would be a good candidate. After hearing more about the cause and the fact that the incidence of breast cancer in Long Island is among the highest in the country, I quickly agreed. The local charities help so many women and families in such a positive way. I'll have to make sure I'm extra handsome for Friday night so the ladies at the Bachelor Auction bid enough money on me to make a difference! "

Guy Cosmo will be the only professional race car driver participating in the annual auction. He will be joined by 20 other bachelors, including a New York fireman and police officer. 106.1 WBLI - FM is a Cox Broadcasting-owned station.
