Do Good Date Night at Second Harvest.

Kristen Manieri who founded the Orlando Date Night blog hosted a Do Good Date Night at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida (411 Mercy Dr, Orlando, Florida 32805). Couples were invited to a night of pitching in for a good cause combined with date night fun with your sweetie. An hour was spent sorting food during this very busy time of year. Skids full of large boxed items were lined up on the left and couples walked down the line inserting items in a baggie as they moved to the right. Finished bags were sealed and then packed into boxes on the right. It became a playful and then efficient assembly line with a bit of a competitive spirit.

Then the second hour was spent enjoying gourmet bites (burger slider station and more) and sipping one great beer or wine, which were included with the $20 tickets. Additional glasses of wine or beer could be purchased. Entertainment was provided by Curtis Earth Trivia, who led a fun trivia game complete with prizes for the top three winners.

The Do Good Date Night is a 100% non-profit event series that joins couples with local non-profits through a fun and connective volunteer project. Couples volunteer for about an hour and then enjoy food, refreshments and entertainment.

The next Do Good Date Night is coming up in Orlando on Friday, September 15, 2017. Tickets go on sale 8/24. The Do Good Date Night series is expanding into Tampa, FL and Asheville, NC.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
