Just like regular speed dating, the two parties, the non-profit and the board seeker, sat at a table in a large room and talked for a few minutes before a bell rang and everyone shifted to meet new people.
During the time together, the agencies and the candidates tried to get a feel for each other to determine if they would make a good match. First of all, I thought about it from the perspective of the non-profit, but then I remembered that this event was really more of a two-way conversation, rather than a standard, old-fashioned job interview.
The Divas Curing Teen Violence in New Orleans, Louisiana, played matchmaker and gave participants the chance to mingle for a good cause. The events were for local singles ages 25 and older, and were organized to raise money for the YOUTHanasia Foundation Inc, which creates prevention and intervention programs to cure teen violence among youth ages 13-18. There were some dating success stories as a result of the fundraiser. They were asked to return to future events to give updates.
In the first fundraiser, the Divas registered 30 eligible bachelors and the flood gates opened! The response was more than the group hoped for and they knew they were on to something. In the second speed dating fundraiser, local single males had two minutes to get to know some of the Crescent City’s loveliest bachelorettes.
