There are plenty of things for senior residents to do in Sunny Isles Beach. In addition to the programs offered by the City, an organization, called the Sunny Isles Beach Social Seniors, led by Chairman Dennis Stubbolo, offers monthly social gatherings, which give residents and guests an opportunity to come together and enjoy live entertainment, learn about important medical or financial issues, or just share some time with friends and neighbors.
With a lot of hard work and planning on Dennis’ part, the SIB Social Senior group has enjoyed great success in the past year. A sampling of their activities include: History of the Titanic Luncheon, Day trip to Key West, and Winter Music Festival.
The winter season continues on Thursday, January 17th, at 11:00 am when guests will enjoy a Concert by Violinist Eddy Shraybman and Pianist Michael Bendoym. This lively duet has performed individually and as part of larger ensembles, and is always a big hit! Tickets are required for admission to this event; $3 with Sunny Isles Beach Resident ID card and $5 without.
The group is sponsoring a day trip to Coral Gables on Sunday, January 27th, guests can meet at City Hall at 10am, and enjoy a day out, worry free. Let us do the driving, while everyone enjoys brunch at the famous Versailles Restaurant, and then continue on for a tour at the Biltmore Hotel. After the escorted tour, enjoy some free time on the grounds of this historic property before we head back to Sunny Isles Beach. Ticket is required for event and includes transportation, brunch, and escorted tour of Biltmore Hotel: $25 with Sunny Isles Beach Resident ID card and $30 without.
On Friday, February 1 at 1:00pm in the SIB Government Center, an up and coming 10 year old musical prodigy, Biana, will perform for the group. This is a unique opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. Ticket is required for admission: $3 with Sunny Isles Beach Resident ID Card, and $5 without.
For those interested in some professional input and options regarding their senior lifestyle, the University of Miami will send representatives who will field Questions and Answers on concerns of senior citizens. This free event will take place in the SIB Government Center Commission Chambers on Thursday, February 7 at 1:00pm.
Due to an overwhelmingly popular response, the Versailles Restaurant brunch and Biltmore Tour sold out very quickly. To accommodate more people, a second trip has been scheduled. On Sunday, February 10, the bus will load up and travel to Coral Gables for a repeat of the relaxing day. Payment must be received in person to reserve your space for this second trip.
