Northwest Harvest Fundraiser
Every fall, Seattle Singles Yacht Club raises money for a local food bank–Northwest Harvest. This year’s event was Oct. 7th, and included a sailboat race, auction, dinner and dance. SSYC raised a record $34,000 for Northwest Harvest! Next year’s is scheduled for Sept. 22nd.
Seattle Single Yacht Club members are active even when away from the water! In addition to Monday night meetings and dances, many club members play volleyball on Tuesday nights, gather for Happy Hours on Fridays and plan trips to local museums and special events throughout the year. Others attend dances, dinners and member planned house parties. An SSYC member’s social calendar is always full!
Every Friday, Club members meet at a Seattle-area pub for drinks and small plates. The changing locations are announced at Monday meetings and published in the newsletter that is sent to members. The venues are also on the Calendar on this website. SSYC Eastside members meet the third Thursday each month for an additional get together on the Eastside of Lake Washington. Occasionally, extra happy hours are scheduled for both the North and Sound parts of Puget Sound. But, no matter where you live, please join us for conversation, boat talk and good company!
Seattle Singles host dance nights the second Monday of each month right after the regular meeting. Throughout the year there are themed dances to match the season. The Halloween Dance with a costume contest is always a favorite. Other special dances include Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s, Christmas, a Northwest Harvest Gala fundraiser and the Commodore’s Ball.
