White Party Returns!

Annual event expected to raise more than $150,000

The 2015 White Party is ready to voyage into a moonlit world of glamour when the annual event sets sail on The Grand Floridian yacht out of Bayfront Park's North Dock in Miami on Saturday Nov. 28.

The famous LGBT soirée is a part of a weeklong celebration known as White Party Week that kicks off Wednesday, Nov. 25 with White Heat at Bario Nightclub in Miami. White Party is hosted by Care Resource in Miami and first took place in 2001 in an effort to raise awareness of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

According to Care Resource Marketing and Development Director Jonathan Welsh, the party is still focused on raising awareness but does so in a more subtle way.

"There will be various embedded ways we will be talking about prevention, awareness and treatment to help combat this disease," Welsh said.

At last year's White Party extravaganza, Care Resource raised over $150,000 and Welsh is optimistic that they will garner even more with this year's cruise.

The ship is a luxury charter yacht that has over 18,000 sq. ft. of space and four decks that partygoers will be able to take advantage of along with a full open bar during the six hour boat bonanza.

According to Welsh, this year's White Party will honor the past but also usher in a new era.

"We are bringing back many of the original entertainers like Elaine Lancaster and Kitty Meow, who were both some of the first people to work the White Party," Welsh said.

Some newer acts to join this year include DJ Roland Belmares and Wildchild.

"We want people to come out and have fun and want them to come back again next year," Welsh said.

He adds that the more people who come, the more money Care Resource can raise to help their over 53,000 clients.

"Just $7 can help us give food to an entire family for a week," Welsh said.

The White Party is one of the oldest and largest HIV/AIDS fundraising events in the world. And this year Welsh promises that the event will live up to its reputation in both celebration and in benevolence.
