Harvest Home Care and The Village Senior Residence are proud to sponsor Missoula’s first-its-kind Elder Speed Dating event for adults age 60-to-90 on October 27 at The Silk Road restaurant.
Inspired by the documentary film Age of Love, elder or “senior” speed dating celebrates the power of love to break down ageist stereotypes and recognize that older singles desire to be seen, understood and have access to love and companionship.
Speed dating is a structured event that gathers a group of singles (10 women and 10 men) and pairs them with one-another in a series of five-minute mini-dates. Participants track their interest in potential partners on a scorecard that is submitted to the organizer after the event. No contact information is exchanged but if the scorecard indicates mutual interest between two singles they are each notified by mail and encouraged to follow-up on their own.
The cost is $15 per ticket and includes a reception with drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Space is limited, email Kaley Burke to reserve a ticket.
