On Saturday, November 24, 2018, from 7 to 11 p.m. at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, the South Florida community is invited to attend The White Party. This elegant affair – all in white – will celebrate the remarkable advancements of Care Resource; a not-for-profit community-based healthcare organization serving South Florida’s diverse community for over 30 years.
In the mid-1980s, when the world struggled with a new health epidemic: HIV/AIDS, prominent Miamians Frank Wager and Jorge Suarez planned a fundraising event to raise awareness of a disease that was affecting many in South Florida. With support from a local fledgling AIDS organization “Health Crisis Network” and through grassroots efforts, Wager and Suarez welcomed 1,600 guests adorned in white to the inaugural White Party in 1985 at the enchanting Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
For over 35 years, The White Party™ has raised millions of dollars for Care Resource and has attracted national awareness, top talent, and celebrity attendees, from Ru Paul and Madonna to Calvin Klein and Cyndi Lauper.
Guests are encouraged to dress in white, celebrate life, community, family, and friends and enjoy the sounds of CHIC vocalist Kimberly Davis, while overlooking Biscayne Bay at this legendary South Florida estate.
Tickets, $250 for general admission and $350 for VIP, can be purchased online at WhiteParty.org. Funds raised support the programs and services at Care Resource.
