Raising money for kids at the Hospital for Sick Children and flirting are two of Adriano Belli's off-field interests.

On Feb. 11, the big Argonauts tackle is going to have a chance to do both at the same time.

Belli, in support of his Big Kiss Fund charity, has organized an event during which women can bid to have a romantic dinner with various CFL players and media personalities that night.

Proceeds will go to his Big Kiss charity, which is geared toward helping sick children. The dinner will be at Trane Studio in Toronto.

"I'm more interested in spending time with the kids," Belli said. "But it's about anything to make them happy. I thought this would be something different."

Among the football players, past and present, who will be available for bids are Belli, former NFL quarterback Jesse Palmer, Hamilton Tiger-Cats running back Jesse Lumsden and Argos linebacker Kevin Eiben.

Other participants include Matt Dunigan, Dave Randorf and James Cybulski of TSN.
