Seriously, that is a real event. The much-anticipated National Single Cougars Convention took place at Dinah's Garden Hotel in Palo Alto, Calif., last Friday.
Yes, really, it did.
The event, sponsored by Rich Gosse's Society of Single Professionals, began with cocktails, appetizers and presentations from some different booth sponsors.
Author Francesca Gentille and Tahil Gesyuk, her partner who is 14 years younger, spoke to a room of close to 60 cougars on relationships with younger men.
This woman was named First Runner-Up at Miss Cougar USA. Just kidding.
No word on the criteria necessary to enter one's self in the Miss Cougar USA pageant. Maybe we can learn more from that new show Cougar Town this fall.
After the presentation, the Cougar Ball began with over a hundred “cubs,” or younger men, who mingled and danced with all the singles. Society is great.
The climax of the night was the crowning of the first Miss Cougar USA (also called Miss Cougar America) which went to Gloria Navarro of Redwood Shores.
Congratulations, we guess, to Gloria Navarro.
