It was to raise funds and awareness for the upcoming GI Film Festival 2013, taking place May 6-12 throughout the DC area. The highest bidders won a dinner date with some of DC's most eligible military bachelors at one of DC's Top restaurants. The ringer for this first ever event for the GI Film Festival actor Scott Elrod, recently seen in the film Argo and soon to appear in Lone Survivor alongside Mark Wahlberg. Son of an F-16 pilot, Scott followed in the footsteps of his father and served in the United States Air Force as an air traffic controller from 1994-2000.
