If potentially finding your parched self a tall drink of water in the otherwise dry desert of the Melbourne dating scene isn't a good enough reason to head along to a speed dating night, we have another: as well as livening up your dating life, you might just be contributing to ending world hunger.
So it will go at CitySwoon Charity Fundraiser event, The Party to End World Hunger. Singletons, unite — open to any age, gender and orientation, the party will incorporate drinks and dating rounds facilitated by your hosts from CitySwoon. The hosts will match you with five or six potentials, and there'll also be a DJ post-rounds if someone takes your fancy and you want to stick around for dance.
All proceeds from the night will go to The Hunger Project Australia, supplying food to those in need. The Hunger Project's goal is to end world hunger by 2030 and break the poverty cycle.
CitySwoon holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest blind date ever, so you know the team knows what they're doing. Tickets are $49, or $34 for CitySwoon members, so sign up now — good things can happen.
The Party to End World Hunger will take place on Saturday, November 17 from 7pm. To purchase a ticket, head to the CitySwoon website.
