Regional Social Events

Regional GroupsSoaring Spirits provides widowed people with the chance to meet socially, and to create a local community of widowed friends through our Regional Social Group program. Groups are led by our awesome volunteer facilitators who plan meetings twice a month in their geographical area.

Our meetings are focused on assisting widowed men and women in rebuilding their social structure post-loss. We don’t provide any presented content, and all of our meetings are held in easily accessible public locations. Our aim is to assist widowed people in getting back out into the world, with a group of understanding friends by their sides!

The locations of our regional groups are determined by the availability of a volunteer willing to head the program in any given area. To determine if there is a Soaring Spirits Regional Social Group meeting near you, just enter your zip or postal code below. Interested in joining our Regional Social Leader team?

    Sunrise Coffee/Sunset Park in Las Vegas, NV

    LAS VEGAS - November 18

    Coffee or a Walk?  Take your pick ... or do both!

    You'll find us at Sunrise Coffee on the 3rd Saturday of each month. We'll grab a space there from 9am to Noon, so feel free to stop by anytime during those hours (but please RSVP here so we know to save a spot for you).

    If you'd like to walk, be there by 9:10 when the walkers will head across the street to Sunset Park for a 20-40 minute walk, depending upon the desire of the group. The rest of us will save space for you to join the conversations when the walk is finished.

    Check out the Sunrise Coffee menu here:

    Spin New York in New York, NY

    NEW YORK CITY - November 18

    Let's Play Ping Pong at SPIN

    Let's try something a little different from our previous event. Ping-pong is a great icebreaker, conversation starter & social activator. It adds a layer of comfort and engagement beyond traditional events.

    The cost for attending will be $12, payable at the time of entrance in cash. I will be reserving in advance so the $12 will reimburse me for that expense. This cost does not include food and drinks.

    We will be meeting outside the venue at 12:45pm, look for me with the soaring spirits meetup sign.

    Please plan your travel so that you can arrive at the scheduled time. Late arrivals may loose the opportunity to play and may cause the group to lose our table.

    The amount of tables reserved will depend on number of people that RSVP, so please RSVP now!

    RALEIGH - November 18


    Let's go bowling! I'm really terrible at it, but it's fun anyway. There's a Groupon for 63% off here, 

    so at least it won't cost me too much to embarrass myself! We'll meet just inside the front doors at 6pm.

    We can go for dinner or drinks afterward, if folks are interested.
