The Date Night Auction at Tequilaz is always a fun time, and this Saturday it returns! There will be a number of dates with various themes such as baking, watching a movie, exploring Gwangju’s Russian community, and enjoying a home cooked meal. The money raised from the event will go towards Adopt-A-Child for Christmas. This organization makes sure that children at local orphanages in Gwangju have a gift to open for Christmas. Besides the dates that will be auctioned, there will be a kissing booth as well! It’s going to be a great night, for an even greater cause. It will all begin at 10:00 p.m. at Tequilaz. If you need more details, please check out their Facebook event page.
