San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2015
Stitch.net, an online companionship service for adults 50 and better, is excited to announce that Sunday, August 9, 2015 will celebrate the launch of their new online community with a big dance party in San Francisco’s Mission Bay district.
This is major San Francisco news for its booming tech scene, which is generally focused on throwing parties and launching apps for young 20-30 year olds. Stitch is combatting startup trends and stereotypes by celebrating singles over 50 dating, dancing, traveling, and more.
Included in the festivities will be live jazz and dj’d music, a photo booth, drink wristbands, lots of dancing, food and snacks, all types of drinks, “Live Stitching” activities, and a beer pong tournament with major prizes. Lyft (http://www.lyft.com) is partnering with Stitch to provide $20 credits to attendees so that they can drink responsibly and not drive to and from the event.
It does all sound like a college party. However, this bash is exclusively for mature adults 50 and up. Ages will be strictly enforced, since the company has hired a bouncer to stand at the entrance and check IDs to make sure everyone is 50+.
Stitch’s new Community feature gives members anywhere in the world the ability to get together in groups; a feature that has not traditionally been offered by online dating websites. This feature, like many, has been built based on Stitch member feedback. Any Stitcher can suggest an activity they would like to do with other Stitchers in their specific community. Activities suggested can be as general as a movie and coffee to as specific as a one-time concert or show. Stitchers who say, “I’m interested” in that activity can then communicate with other members as a group to coordinate details.
“This has really built a strong sense of community in San Francisco and now many different locations across the world,” said Marcie Rogo, co-founder and CMO of Stitch.net. “Hundreds of activities have already been posted. Stitchers are getting together for group dinners, poetry lessons, comedy nights, group walks in the Presidio, and museum visits. Stitch members can now get out of the house and go do the things they love, whether there are 10 or 1000 people in their area. Stitch would like to celebrate this huge milestone with a big bash exclusively for adults over 50. To all the ageists out there, this party shows that being over 50 means doesn't mean they can't party just as hard and have just as much fun as anyone else! They can probably party harder!”
The Community Launch Party will be held at the Mission Rock Resort (817 Terry A Francois Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94107) on Sunday, August 9th from 2pm to 5pm. Tickets are available on Eventbrite or on http://www.stitch.net/sflaunch. Discounted tickets, and complimentary drink coupons are offered for members. For anyone over 50 who wants to join Stitch, it’s free and can be done via http://www.stitch.net/signup.
Stitch offers companionship, travel, group activities, and romance for adults 50 and better. Not everyone is looking for love, but everyone is looking for a companion – a golf buddy, a dinner-date, a hiking companion, a travel partner, etc. Like Tinder, Stitch offers mutual consent, but rather than matching based on age, appearance, and racial background, the service matches based on location, interests, and activities.
