Peter and Diane Finch started the Single Professionals’ Network in 1991 and personally host the events. Since then, they have been credited for many weddings in the city and feel this is the most rewarding part of the business. It is never too late to fall in love. Single Professionals’ Network has steadily grown over the last few years. It seems any time of year is a good time to meet someone special. People come out from as far away as Niagara Falls and Oshawa to attend.

The couple has created a warm and comfortable atmosphere for people to meet each other They have discovered that meeting others face to face is still very popular because you can make eye contact, be greeted with a smile, then be adventurous by asking that person to dance. Peter says, “It is important to make your own good time.” He provides the friendly surroundings to do just that. There are few places in the city where the over thirty crowd can simply enjoy an evening of dancing.

The cost of most dances is very affordable at $13.00 to $15.00 depending on the event. If you would like more information about the Single Professionals’ Network, call their 24 hour hotline at 416-236-8222 or visit their website at
