Wouldn’t it be great to have a fun, connective date night while feeling like you made a difference in your community at the same time? That’s exactly the thinking behind our Do Good Date Night series. Couples pitch in to help a local non-profit and then they kick back and enjoy food, drinks and good times. It’s a win-win for everyone.
The Do Good Date Night combines volunteering with date night by giving couples access to fun and rewarding service experiences in their community.
“We have a lot of fundraising dinners and events in our area but they can be pretty expensive and they don’t physically connect people to a cause in a tangible way,” says Kristen Manieri, founder of Orlando Date Night Guide.com, DateNightGuide.com, and creator of the Do Good Date Night series.
“This event series is all about giving couples a fun date night out but also giving them the opportunity to make a difference in the world.”
On September 26, 2015, we launched our first Do Good Date Night in partnership with Feeding Children Everywhere, a Florida-based non-profit that has sent more than 75 million meals to hungry children across the world since it began in 2010.
“I believe most people want to do something to help the many, many families who are struggling but it’s difficult to fit volunteering into our busy lives,” says Kristen Manieri. “That’s why combining volunteering with date night is such a win/win. Couples go out and do something connective and fun together but it’s also the chance to make a difference. It’s a very rewarding experience for all.”
Do Good Date Night is a registered non-profit organization with the State of Florida.
This non-profit already has a turn-key volunteer experience. They don't create an experience just for our event.
We set a date, determine our service project for the evening, order food and drinks, and design a fun date night activity.
Couples purchase tickets (usually $15-$25 each), which pay for the cost of the event and commits our attendees to their volunteer date on a specific date and time. Our events are 100% non-profit.
Each event lasts about 2 hours: 1 hour for volunteering and 1 hour for food/drink and fun.
