Mark Owen with Co-Host Sherrie Nattrass
Mark Owen is the Founder of Events and Adventures, a members-only social club for single adults that has tens of thousands of members in various cities throughout the US and Canada.
His club takes its members to every kind of social gathering in every corner of the globe where they find companionship and even love.
Owen says club members don’t want to sit at home, but want to go out and make real relationships with other people. Events and Adventures is based on the simple concept that when you relax and have fun, that is when you are the most attractive to other people, and it helps if you are in the same room with them.
Owen started Events and Adventures in Seattle in 1987. His vision was to take the pressure out of dating and put groups of like-minded singles together in fun and adventurous settings.
Events and Adventures has a 27-year history that not only pre-dates the rise of the Internet but also major dating companies like eHarmony, established in 2000, and Match.com, in 1993.
Mark says that finding someone to spend the rest of your life with is a very basic thing. It doesn’t matter what the culture is, people are not meant to be alone!
