Trista Sutter (The Bachelorette) and Molly Mesnick (The Bachelor) are leading the pack of over 30 past contestants from the infamous shows to donate items worn during rose ceremonies, first dates and reunions. They have teamed up with luxury consignment service, eDrop-Off, to auction off the items beginning August 5th and ending on August 12th with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Red Cross. They will also help host a “finale” event with eDrop-Off founder, Corri McFadden on August 11th in Chicago. [Racked Wire]
