Singles Parties, Feb 29 - Mar 1, 2008

What a great weekend of parties! We LEAPT into March by having two parties on Leap Day, Friday, Feb 29. Our Monterey Bay Singles Convention, postponed to Feb 29 because of the Storm of the Decade on January 4, was worth the wait! This time we had great weather... a great turnout... and a great party.

Also on Leap Day, we had our monthly Young Single Professionals Party at Lion and Compass in Sunnyvale. Disappointing turnout after the huge crowd that attended the last YSP Party, which was in San Francisco. Our next YSP party will be our first ever in the East Bay, at the legendary Trader Vics Restaurant in Emeryville on March 27.

Our annual Singles Charity Ball at the Westin St Francis Hotel on Union Square, Saturday, March 1st, was the perfect way to start off the new month. What a humongous and well-dressed crowd! 100% of the money goes to The Seva Foundation to fight blindness. We raised over $11,000 that night, which will enable Seva to restore sight to approximately 220 blind people. If you did not get a chance to attend, perhaps you will consider sending your tax-deductible donation to The Seva Foundation, 1786 Fifth St., Berkeley CA 94710. It only costs $50 for Seva to finance a sight-restoring cataract surgery for one person in a poor country!

Thank you to the dozens of singles organizations who co-sponsored The Singles Charity Ball with us. A special thank you to City Dish for donating 300 discount cards to San Francisco's finest restaurants for the first 300 to arrive.

This coming week features FOUR fun events:

  • Tuesday, March 4 we host a FREE Singles Financial Planning Seminar & Social, with Tom Pattinson, "The Singles Retirement Guru." You won't want to miss Tom's invaluable insights and the socializing that follows, at San Rafael's Embassy Suites Hotel.
  • Thursday, March 6 we have a Singles Mixer for adults of all ages at Trader Vic's in Emeryville,. This is our first-ever party at this spectacular restaurant, and we're excited! This is such a great location we are doing a second party, as noted above, on March 27, for our younger group.
  • Friday, March 7. We've done Lady in Red and Men in Black parties in the past. For the first time we combine these two popular themes into one great dance party at Tarragon in Sunnyvale. This is co-sponsored with Singles Supper Club, so expect a large crowd.
  • Saturday, March 8. The Grand Finale for the weekend is our 2nd Annual Art & Wine Tasting Party at Art Works Downtown in San Rafael. This time we are adding a guided tour of this huge, AMAZING art gallery, and the opportunity to meet many of the artists, in addition to sampling some great wines from boutique wineries!
