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.  Call your friends - and start making plans!

THE SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY IS EMBARKING ON A GREAT ADVENTURE BY HOSTING AN EVENT AT A DIFFERENT EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE CLUB EACH MONTH FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS..  Join us as we open the doors to the area's most prestigious clubs for a variety of events.
 
Having enjoyed many wonderful parties and gatherings at the Sarasota Yacht Club previously, we have now shared great times at the University Park Country Club, the Bird Key Yacht Club and the Sara Bay Country Club.  
  
A return to the Sarasota Yacht Club for a River Cruise Presentation by Ama Waterways was just enjoyed on July 31st.  The ambience offered by the SYC equals that of Ama Waterways, the top rated river cruise line by Berlitz, so it was the perfect place to learn about the hottest buzz in travel, as well as the top ranked river cruise line.
 
Our next entrée to a private club will be an Oktoberfest celebration, complete with music and dancing, on October 18th.  The exclusive Founder's Club will be our host club for this fun and festive evening. 
 
Put December 16th, 2014, on your calendar!  Our holiday party will be held, once again, at the Sarasota Yacht Club.  With all the boats in the marina decked out for the holidays and the exquisite decorations in the clubhouse, it will be a magical evening!

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.

Life has more color and intensity when shared...
