Sarasota Singles Society

The Sun Coast Area's premier singles social, dining, special event, and travel club. The Sarasota Singles Society elevates the traditional methods for meeting singles.

 
Members gather comfortably at exclusive, elegant private clubs, the area's top restaurants, and at a diverse array of exciting special events.  A wonderful way to make new friends, enjoy an active and fulfilling social life, find compatible
travel companions, network for your business, or perhaps meet a new romantic interest.

 
The SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY takes the process of meeting singles to a new level by providing a means for quality single men and women from Sarasota and the surrounding area to meet through socializing with other singles while savoring the pleasures of fine dining, extraordinary special events and amazing travel opportunities.
 
 
Our concept provides the perfect alternative to online dating or the typical bar scene.  There is no comparison to meeting a number of quality singles in person at an upscale social event.  We are all unique and comprised of many facets.  The entire person as a whole, and how they present themselves, is what either creates that magic when you meet someone, or not.  It is hard to imagine how a computer or another person can possibly determine who your perfect match might be.
 
 
Our upscale social events offer a comfortable, natural setting which puts people at ease and allows them to be themselves.  Hosts are on hand at every event to greet guests as they arrive and make certain they are connecting and involved throughout the evening.  It is amazing to see how people immediately start conversing and comingling when placed in a normal social setting. 
 
 
We have a wonderful core group of members who are very welcoming.  You will be in the company of others in the same situation when arriving, as we have new guests, as well as new members, joining us for the first time at every event.  There will be a different mix of people at each event, so you never know who you might meet! 
 
 
The SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY offers a far more natural, respectable, and safe way for people to meet.  Not just for romantic interests, but connecting and developing relationships within a comfortable community of friends who have wonderful opportunities to socialize together and do those things singles would otherwise not be able to do.  This is especially true for those recently relocated to the area, or someone who has just lost their life partner.    
 
 
Although not promoted as a dating entity, many people have now met through attending our events and are experiencing the joy of having that special someone in their lives. 
  
      
Famed novelist Charlotte Bronte wisely wrote "Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste." If you are looking for a way to share some happiness with friends who, like you, enjoy the things that make life fun and create a more fulfilling life - join us!

Variety Is The Spice Of Life

THE SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY OFFERS A CONSTANT VARIETY OF SOCIAL AND CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES.

A different mix of exciting social and cultural events is offered to fit everyone's interests.  You will have a broad variety of events to select from, such as parties for most holidays and special days of the year.   There are themed evenings, music venues, dinner dances, theatre parties, wine tastings, brunches, boat trips, beach parties, sports events and more.  Get your social calendar out as you view the tempting array of fabulous events on the Event Calendar that are already arranged for you.  Start making plans!

 Fall Tour of the Arts

LIVING IN AN ABSOLUTE MECCA FOR THE ARTS, THE SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY WILL BE HOSTING  EXTRAORDINARY OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPERIENCE SOME OF OUR CULTURAL TREASURES THIS FALL.
 
On September 5th, we were very honored to enjoy exclusive use of the Sarasota Opera House for the evening.  They took us on a backstage tour of this famed historic gem and then we enjoyed a catered cocktail party in their club lounge.
 
The Artist Series Concerts is hosting a "Soiree" in a private residence with a very limited number of people in attendance.  Kevin Zhu, a world renowned 12 year old violinist, will be performing following a reception with wine and hors d'oeuvres.  We have been invited and have a limited number of tickets to offer our group for this exceptional opportunity.
 
We have a grand plan for the Asolo Rep Theatre. South Pacific will be their big fall blockbuster hit production this year.  On November 15th, we will have a "Theatre Party" including a backstage tour and a pre-show cocktail reception with exclusive use of the mezzanine.  Then, of course, we have a block of seats to experience South Pacific together.
 
  
 
SOUTH PACIFIC
 
From the haunting "Bali Hai" to the exquisite "Some Enchanted Evening," this Rodgers and Hammerstein classic contains some of the most glorious music ever written.  The winner of 10 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, South Pacific tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples on a remote island in the Pacific and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and their own prejudices.
 
THIS IS A LIMITED CAPACITY EVENT AND MUST BE BOOKED EARLY TO ENSURE BEING INCLUDED IN THIS EXTRAORDINARY OFFERING.

JOIN SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY BECAUSE YOUR TIME AND YOUR HEART MATTER!

Although a fairly new venue for the Sarasota area, this innovative concept has been an extremely popular and successful way for singles to meet for many years in Chicago. 

Carol and Harold Erickson founded "The Single Gourmet Dining and Travel Club" in Chicago and watched it grow to 1200 members - primarily through word of mouth!  After 27 years of hosting events and helping scores of singles create life-long relationships in Chicago, they have now become full time residents of Sarasota.  The Ericksons join us as mentors, as well as seasoned hosts, at each of our events.
 
JOIN the SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY and celebrate life!  Your social calendar will soon be filled with opportunities to enjoy endless special times and memorable occasions with your new circle of friends.
