Charity Date Night in Clarendon to Include 20 Arlington Singles
Some of the proceeds from the event hosted by the Arlington Young Democrats benefit Doorways for Women and Families.
If you’re looking for love or just looking to support a good cause, the Arlington Young Democrats are hosting their 12th Annual Charity Date Auction Thursday.
Twenty bachelors and bachelorettes will participate at the event from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Clarendon Grill, 1101 N. Highland St. You can read their bios on the Young Democrats website. More profiles will be added to the site this week, said Mike Lewan, communications director for the Young Democrats.
Half of the proceeds from the event benefits Doorways for Women and Families, an Arlington-based charity that strives to end homelessness and supports victims of domestic violence. Organizers hope to raise at least $6,000 at the event, previous years have brought anywhere from $5,000 to $7,000.
“Doorways does great work in the Arlington community and we have a great list of non-date items as well,” Lewan said.
Other highlights include items up for raffle, silent auction and live auction.
Admission is $10, which includes an auction bid card. Those donating any new and unopened supplies such as water bottles, saran wrap, aluminum foil, Tupperware or baby monitors will receive additional raffle tickets.
