Sarasota Singles Society
The Sun Coast Area's premier singles social, cultural, 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.

Tour of the Arts
LIVING IN AN ABSOLUTE MECCA FOR THE ARTS, THE SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY HAS BEEN HONORED TO HOST EXTRAORDINARY OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPERIENCE THE CULTURAL TREASURES THAT SURROUND US.
In September, we were very honored to enjoy exclusive use of the Sarasota Opera House for the evening. After being treated to a most interesting private backstage tour of this famed historic gem, we then enjoyed a catered cocktail party in their club lounge.
An exceptional evening in October found a group of us at a "Soiree" in a private residence. Following a cocktail reception, we were entertained by an amazingly talented, 12 year old world renowned violinist, as guests of the Artist Series Concerts.
On November 15th, we had a smashing theatre party at the Asolo Repertory Theatre. A private backstage tour earlier in the day included up close and personal viewing of the sets for that night's performance of South Pacific. With exclusive use of the mezzanine, we hosted a pre-show cocktail reception. Our premier seats allowed for a panoramic view as we were dazzled by the spectacular production of South Pacific in the jewel box Asolo Repertory Theatre.
A stunning performance by Gloria Musicae, "In Thanksgiving," followed at the Sarasota Opera House on November 23rd. With exclusive use, an elegant reception in the private Club Lounge featured delicious "Thanksgiving-ish" hors d'oeuvres catered by Duval's. A perfect beginning to our holiday celebrations.
We look forward, in the new year, to behind the scene tours along with receptions, of the amazing facilities at The Ringling and the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. We also have invitations to attend live performances together from our own block of seats with receptions or dinners included.
So much to look forward to!

JOIN SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY BECAUSE YOUR TIME AND YOUR HEART MATTER!
Now enjoying our 2nd year in the Sarasota area, this innovative concept has been an extremely popular and successful way for singles to meet.
Although fairly new to this area, this concept was shared by Carol and Harold Erickson who founded "The Single Gourmet Dining and Travel Club" in Chicago and watched it grow to 1200 members. 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.
