With a desire to pair her love of volunteering for charities with her singles events, Risa created "Dating for a Cause" events where you can 'meet great singles and help a great charity, simultaneously!' A variety of other singles events are offered each year including hiking, kayaking, apple picking, picnics, etc. Risa also provides personalized matchmaking and dating coaching services to a select clientele.
After 13 years in business, Risa has hosted more than 3,600 8minuteDating events, has a mailing list of 12,500+ singles and has countless weddings, engagements and matches to her credit.
Risa met John at one of her own 8minuteDating events in Princeton in 2010 and they were married 4 years later. John proposed on Risa's 50th birthday and as this is her first marriage, many have reflected on what a story of hope this truly is.
"Creating Opportunities for Love"
Our first 8minuteDating location in NJ...
the fun and fabulous Colorado Cafe!
TheSinglesGroup.com is the largest full-service singles company in the tri-state area, founded by Risa Glaser Grimaldi in 2006.
An attorney with an MBA, Risa has been a Business Advisor to presidents, professionals and entrepreneurs for more than 30 years. In her free time she serves as a volunteer for not-for-profit organizations like the Make-a-Wish Foundation and was running charity events when someone suggested she start an event company - and she did!
Ultimately this turned into a singles business when the Manager at the Colorado Cafe asked her to host their 8minuteDating events.
