Description: Start your New Year off right by helping animals, meeting new people and having fun! Speed dating event and charity mixer to benefit homeless boxers in Maricopa County.  Event is for 21 and older.  Proceeds to benefit Boxer Luv Rescue.

MESA, AZ  1-22-2011  – Most people have heard of Speed Dating, some have tried it and many want to.  Speed dating is a fun, fast and effective way to meet several people in a safe environment. This event will give people an opportunity to attend the charity mixer, participate in a speed dating event and support a great cause.  The mixer is open to the general public, so couples can help boxers and support their single friends.  The event will be held at the Cactus Clubhouse at Dobson Ranch Inn.  Doors open at 6:00 PM on Saturday, 1-22-11.  The Dobson Ranch Inn is conveniently located just South of the US60 on Dobson Road.  1666 South Dobson Road Mesa, AZ 85202

Boxers are kid-friendly, loving, loyal and playful pets.  Many people who volunteer fell in love with the breed as their first boxer. The Spring tends to be the time where shelters fill up with unwanted “holiday gift” pets. Every animal rescue group in the state needs help right now; volunteers, money and time.  

The event has an open mixer for $10 and speed dating for $35 which includes admission to the mixer. Speed dating will occur in a private room outside of the mixer area. Speed Daters are encouraged to bring friends to make a greater impact. 

 Christa Sorenson states, “I wanted to create an event that was open to everyone.  This structure allows couples to come out, help the boxers and support their single, speed dating friends.  The mixer will have games, goodies, raffle prizes and fun for all.”    

Speed daters are encouraged to sign up in advance.  Last minute participants and mixer attendees can pay at the door.  2011 is going to be a great year!
