Date Night for a Cause:Take Your Pick!

November is a fabulous month for fundraisers and as a result, there are many events happening around the city this month. There are actually a few happening in early December as well. I love the idea of going to a fundraiser for date night because its:

  1. Something different
  2. A great excuse to get all dressed up
  3. Often a great value when you factor in that you’re getting a meal & entertainment
  4. Sometimes you get the added bonus of a partial tax receipt! (Check with he organization first)
  5. It feels good to support a worthy cause
  6. They often have fun prizes & swag /goodie bags to take home 😉

If cost is an issue, the hubs & I prefer to skip a ‘regular’ date night or two in order to afford a fundraiser date night.

So, without further ado, here are some of the fundraisers coming up over the next month.

Enjoying a fabulous date night with food & entertainment where proceeds benefit the community in some way?  It’s doubly great!I personally am in serious need of a fun date night & am looking forward to getting all dressed up with somewhere to go;) While the hubs & I won’t be able to make it to all of the above, we’re hoping to take in 1 or 2 :)So…go ahead, call the babysitter & then the hair dresser & treat yourselves to a wonderful night out…after all, it’s for a good cause :)Wishing you a wonderful day,
