RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

And today's last word in business: Can't buy me love.

Finding love can be hard, and it may be even harder for a wealthy person. According the Society of Single Professionals, quote, "the 1 percent live in constant fear that their money will attract gold diggers, seeking to enrich themselves." But no more. The group has decided to host dating events that cater to wealthy individuals looking for love.

Singles in the San Francisco area can attend tonight's One Percent Single's Ball. And later this year, the One Percent Singles Cruise will depart from Istanbul, where the penthouse suite goes for a mere $14,000. Smaller, less expensive cabins are also available for the more thrifty 1-percenters.

And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.
