Bidding for date with Betty Loren Maltese

October 10, 2010 (CHICAGO) Maltese appeared on the Geoff Pinkus Show on radio Sunday while Pinkus held the auction.

Money raised will go to help Densey Cole, the Chicago police officer who was paralyzed when he was injured while on duty.

Three callers bid a total of $400 to have coffee and lunch with Loren Maltese. She says she met Cole at a fundraiser last weekend and decided to help.

"I will always do anything to help an officer or a fireman. I think people that do emergency services should always be at the top of everyone's list," she said.

Loren Maltese also says, after many years of being alone, she's now starting to date again.
