We thought it would be a fun way to bring in money,” said Jim Sargent, president of the NU Democrats, prior to the event. “It’s the first we’ve done, so the results do remain to be seen.” The date auction was part of a charity challenge held by the College Democrats of Massachusetts. According to Sargent, money raised will go right from the hands of the College Democrats to those of representatives at the Louisiana State University Medical Center.

“We’re Republicans. We don’t sell our bodies for money,” said Tina Penman, current member and former president of College Republicans.

Sargent, commenting on the evening’s moments of controversy, mentioned Brian Deeth, who wore “assless pants,” and Lauraly Atria, who pioneered the evening’s nudity.

“She flashed for a good cause,” the president said.

The NU Democrats raised a reported $1,266 with a top paid bid of $125. Sargent himself went for $50, the last “intern” to be auctioned.

“We’ve gotten a lot of great feedback, and were pleasantly surprised by the night’s success,” he said.
