Come out to mingle and enjoy the company of new people in a fun and relaxed atmosphere while volunteering on site for a great cause.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Thank you to our corporate philanthropist partner, Flight Beer and Music Hall. Light refreshments will be provided with a cash bar available. Invite your single friends and be part of the matchmaking fun. We can’t wait to see you there!
This will be the seventh Philanthrodating™ event hosted by Carolinas Matchmaker. So far, the mixers have raised more than $16,000 for Charlotte nonprofits. Proceeds from this mixer will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation – Charlotte Chapter. Philanthrodating™ events are inclusive of all sexual orientations, faiths, ethnicities, and political views.
Conversations among singles have shifted recently, in line with national trends: people want to find someone else who is making a difference in the world.
The traditional check list of financial security, religious affiliation, and political affiliation are important to many singles, but philanthropy is making a rise on the list too. So Carolinas Matchmaker decided to pair generosity and dating to create Philanthrodating™.
The mixers are singles events where people can meet others who value charitable giving and volunteer work. Volunteerism is a lifestyle choice. Being able to step outside yourself and help others through donating money or your time creates a certain type of individual. Many people with philanthropy in their DNA want their life partner to have the same mindset they do.
Attendance has grown exponentially since the first Philanthrodating™ event November 2016. And it makes sense, the Charlotte Metro region ranks ninth in the country for charitable giving, donating about 3.4% of their income to charity. Nearly 47% of millennials volunteered for a cause or nonprofit in the past month.
