CARE RESOURCE'S WHITE PARTY™
Saturday, November 29 from 7 p.m. to midnight

Dress to Impress for the White Party™, hosted by Care Resource and one of South Florida's most-talked-about events that has raised millions of dollars for HIV/AIDS research, prevention, care and treatment. You'll join hundreds of fabulous fashionistas dressed in white and emblazoned with diamonds and pearls as you enjoy the festivities on PAMM's waterfront patio overlooking the Port of Miami and the gorgeous Miami skyline. Arrive before 9 p.m. and explore the Perez Art Museum Miami while you're entertained by an array of musical ensembles and colorful characters in the museum. Outdoors enjoy cocktails and delectable hors d’oeuvres prepared by Stephen Starr Events, take your chance to win fabulous prizes at the White Party's exciting Casino, and be swept away by DJ David Knapp and the White Party Symphony performing a special tribute to 30 years of music composed and conducted by Sam Hyken during previous White Parties. The evening will be overseen by Elaine Lancaster, the official White Party Hostess. Though the White Party has expanded to include fundraising for all of South Florida’s diverse LGBT and less privileged communities, the event is by no means an LGBT event, but rather a total Miami bash! Don't miss it! Tickets are $215 in advance and $250 the day of the event. Go online for tickets and information, including complimentary shuttle services available from the National Hotel and the Hyatt Regency. Valet parking will be available at the event for $25.
