The Social Book has long been the city’s comprehensive calendar of fundraising events for charities and non-profit organizations, and has expanded to be the Calendar of Calendars, for everything from performances, parties, food/wine/spirits, exhibitions, museums, art and fashion, and trunk shows, to festivals, city, business, and cultural events, sporting/outdoors, and nearly every sort of entertainment. It is also the go-to resource guide of the premier purveyors of goods and services, including service providers in the special events industry—party planners, decorators, venues, technical services (light/sound/video), caterers, and florists—that one might need to produce any type of event to spectacular effect. Other industries are also well represented, and all our advertisers are the “best of the best” companies offering other invaluable goods and services that enhance our enjoyment of life.
Now in its second decade, The Social Book began as a “clearinghouse” for event dates to assist charities in scheduling fundraisers in our active community. It has become a mainstay of society and business leaders, detailing most every fundraising event of the social year—from golf tournaments to luncheons to galas. With our Calendar of Calendars expansion, we are now the one-stop-shop for filling your personal calendar for any event of interest to you. Subscribers are kept up to date about new events on this website (and printed updates to the beautiful, must-have leather binder, at additional cost).
