On Saturday, November 24, from 7pm to 11pm at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens located at 3251 South Miami Avenue, the South Florida community is invited to attend “The White Party™.” This elegant affair 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.
Bringing The White Party™ back to where it all started – Vizcaya is both a homecoming and a renewal to the health center’s commitment in eradicating HIV and uniting the community for a common goal of living, AIDS-free. Today, Care Resource is on the forefront of a movement that will finally lead to zero new infections.
There is a whole new generation out there now. One that was spared the dreadfulness of losing all their friends and role models and one born with hope and options, that Care Resource is proud to continue providing. Today, the health center is also a federally qualified health center welcoming men, women, youth, and children of all ages, races, and ethnicities for affordable primary care, dental care, pediatrics, and behavioral health services!
Come dressed to impress. Performer and popular South Florida Drag Queen Athena Dion is serving as Fashion hostess for the White Wear Fashion Award. Fashion judges include Flavio Nisi, Bravo reality television stars Richie Skye and Ana Quincoces from the Real Housewives of Miami.
Grammy Award winner Kimberly Davis, the lead vocalist for the legendary disco band CHIC, is performing live. From her work on soundtracks and jingles, and with her background of singing and touring, Kimberly continues to turn her dreams into reality with full force! Right out of the gate, her first single — “Get Up” from D1 Music — reached #12 on the Billboard Dance Club Charts. Kimberly strives to create a legacy that will forever honor her music and voice as the once little girl who sang her face off every chance she got, and who was always humble but stayed fierce.
“The early pioneers of the White Party would be amazed to know that in 2017, through outreach, treatment, education, and engagement programs, Care Resource served 17,460 clients at our health centers.” – Russell Corbett, Board President/Chair, Care Resource.
“I am looking forward to playing a beautiful mix of music at this year’s White Party at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. To walk into this historic villa and see everyone in their white fabulosity – is like walking back in time, into the royal courts of France or Italy.” – Chris Deejay Smeejay Hodgson.
“It is an honor to serve as the Master of Ceremonies for The White Party. This event has historically been recognized as the Crown Jewel of HIV/AIDS Fundraisers. This year, it is an elegant and fashionable affair in White that celebrates life, diversity, family, and community.” – Shawn Palacious, Master of Ceremonies, Television Host at HotSpots Media Group.
