About this Event
The holidays are approaching and the Seattle Social Club is ready to celebrate for a cause! The holiday season can be a particularly isolating time for folks, so we thought we’d throw a giant Winter Wonderland bash to bring the community together and support a local charity.
We’re partnering with Bowl-A-Noma, a community organization that supports research into the diagnosis and treatment of Melanoma, to turn The Dock Sports Bar & Grill into a Weak Ties Winter Wonderland! All ticket proceeds will go toward the support of research and patients of Melanoma.
You won’t want to miss this event, we’ll have:
An Ugly Sweater Contest: Grab your ugliest holiday sweater and come join us. We’ll be having a giant ugly sweater contest with prizes for:
- Best Ugly Holiday Sweater
- Best Thrifted Ugly Holiday Sweater
- Audience Favorite Sweater
Themed Drinks: The dock is working hard on putting together holiday-themed drink specials to get you in the holiday spirit with actual spirits.
A DJ: We’re bringing a DJ in to play your favorite holiday singles and today’s top hits.
Holiday Themed Games: What better way to get to know your community than playing pin the nose on the snowman? We’ll have several holiday-themed games as well as all your favorite board games!
A Silent Auction: We’ll have a charity silent auction with all proceeds going to our partner cause Bowl-A-Noma! Come bid on some great items and raise money for Melanoma research.
Weak Tie Ticket Sales: This event is a weak-ties event which means when you buy a ticket you’re actually buying two! Bring your best friend or your roommate, use it as an excuse to ask out your hinge date, or the person you’ve always needed a reason to talk to! This event is designed for establishing new connections in your community all while having fun! Just moved here? We’ll also have solo tickets so you can jump-start your social circle! All ticket sales will be donated to the organization to further the research and patient support of Melanoma.
Grab your tickets, prepare your ugly holiday sweaters and we’ll see you there!
All Seattle Social Club Proceeds from this event will be donated to Bowl-A-Noma to support the fight against Melanoma.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Bowl-A-Noma and why Melanoma?
Bowl-A-Noma is a heartfelt attempt to make something wonderful and worthwhile out of the heart-breaking, tragic, death of Elliott Hathaway Hull. Diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Melanoma in June of 2018, Elliott passed away just four months later due to no effective form of therapy. While in the final days of his illness, Elliott gave to his father his wholehearted approval of organizing an effort to fight Melanoma. Elliott was a Seattle native, served in Afghanistan, was married, and had a 2-year-old son at the time of his passing
It is to Elliott's memory that Bowl-A-Noma is dedicated. BOWL-A-NOMA continues to support research into the diagnosis and treatment of Melanoma. It also provides financial & emotional assistance to Melanoma patients and their families through grants made to cancer treatment facilities. More information can be found at their website: https://www.bowlanoma.org
Melanoma also hits home for both The Dock Sports Bar & Grill and the Seattle Social Club.
Jacquelyn, a founding member of The Dock and the owners' sister, is in a current battle and beating Melanoma.
And I was never able to meet my grandfather, as he passed away from Melanoma when I was 1 year old. It's in his memory that the Seattle Social Club commits to raising money for Melanoma Research.
What are Weak Ties?
The weak ties premise: At the Seattle Social Club, we're fascinated by the idea of weak ties. Weak ties are the people you meet at parties, friends of friends, coworkers, and other people you interact with in your daily lives. Research shows that fostering your weak ties can lead to increased happiness and an increased sense of belonging in your community. Weak ties also serve as a way for you to meet potential dates, many people meet their future spouses through their weak ties. Unfortunately, since Covid has come along, it’s been way harder to increase your weak ties and even harder to date!
So when you purchase a ticket you are actually buying one for yourself and one for a friend. Bring your single friend, the guy you run into in your building elevator, a friend of a friend, or even one of your matches from a previous event. Everyone else will bring their weak ties and we'll get together and mingle with each other. You may walk away with a new date, a new friend, or just a fun time!
What are the different ticket tiers?
We offer several different ticket types and while this event is designed to bring a friend, we offer several options to make sure everyone is able to attend!
