The plot from The Graduate might become a reality for some young men in New York City tonight. Fifteen wealthy women over 35 and 15 hot young guys are set up for a speed-dating event. To qualify, the women had to make more than $500,000 a year or have $4 million in liquid assets. The guys just had to be nice to look at and under 35.
"Sugar Mamas and Boy Toys," is hosted by Jeremy Abelson of PocketchangeNYC.com. The site publishes an electronic newsletter about most expensive goods and services in Los Angeles and New York. Abelson says the company ran a speed-dating event last year for rich men and younger women. "We took a far amount of flak, specifically from feminist organizations," he says. "We vowed to practice equal opportunity, and in a year run a speed date for wealthy old women and hot young men."
