move values from 1 listview to another in C# 2008 WPF

I have a WPF C# application (NOTweb based)

I am trying to create an interface where the user gets a list of freelancers in a listview (listViewFreelancers).
They can choose freelancers and press a button (buttonSelect) which moves them into a 2nd listview (listViewSelected) to show them what they have selected.
Once they have finished selecting they will press a 2nd button (buttonSend) which will an e-mail to all of the freelancers which were selected.
_______________
I have used LINQ to SQL to bind a listview called listViewFreelancers to a LINQ query.
(there are multiple columns, the 1st column being the row_id)

I now need to take the selected rows from listViewFreelancers and move them into listViewSelected. I then need to read them out of listViewSelected so that I can e-mail them.

1) I can't figure out the code to move the selected items from 1 listview to another
2) I don't know how to read the items out of the listViewSelected once they are ready to e-mail the freelancers.

Can someone help ?

Thanks

Jon
bookITDataContext db = new bookITDataContext();
var queryFreelancers = from p in db.Freelancer_basics
             select p;
 
// binding my listview to the results of the query
this.listViewFreelancers.ItemsSource = queryFreelancers;

Thanks for the response.

That much I had gotten working.
I had a mulit-column listview which I was battling to read items out of.
Eventually got it right. :)
