White Party Week 2012, the largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser in the world, returns to Miami Beach Wednesday, November 21 - Monday, November 26.
All tickets are now onsale!!!
Witness the renewal of the 28th Annual White Party, as we hit RESET for the Crown Jewel of HIV/AIDS fundraisers and the White Party Week, Saturday, November 24th from 10pm-5am - with the first White Party to feature OPEN BAR all night long for all ticket holders - inside the Soho Studio at the Wynwood convention center in Miami’s transformational design district with 2,500 men dressed (partially at least) dancing in white to DJ Danny Verde. Suddenly, the DJ stops the music, and the curtain on the stage rises to reveal 50 white android male models. A silver-dominatrix-drag queen princess in a 12-foot headdress lashes out at the crowd with long fingers made of lasers. Reset, reboot, recharge and let the White Party begin!
For the ladies, Saturday features Cirque Blanc. Join thousands of women from across the country for a glamorous inspired evening at one of the hottest locations in Miami. The dance floor will explode in a sea of white, with the sounds of the hottest girl djs in the country on the turntables and a special show. Ladies can try their luck at the fabulous silent auction with a series of luxury items, travel packages, art, theater tickets and spa days. Stroll in the gardens, lounge under the stars or share a romantic moment waterfront at this spectacular evening that has become an annual culmination of diversity, music and all for a wonderful cause.
Get up Sunday and join thousands of tan and beautiful new friends from around the world on the sun-bleached shores of Miami for Muscle Beach. This exquisite strip of beach between Ocean Drive and the Atlantic Ocean, known throughout the world as “America’s Riviera”, is where tropical palms sway over a seductive, multicultural world of art, fashion and sexual energy. This is the setting for Muscle Beach, the award winning 8 hour open-air dance party featuring DJs Joe Gauthreaux and Tracy Young, along with special live performances and a spectacular finale surprise.
While the men party at Muscle Beach, the women will end it all in fashion at Get Lucky Tea Dance where everyone is in for a wild afternoon in the sun and surf of South Beach. Get your groove on, make a new friend or just say farewell to the girls you partied with all week.

About Care Resource
Community AIDS Resource, Inc., d.b.a. / CARE RESOURCE is a 501[c](3) non-profit, multi-cultural, community based AIDS service organization rooted in the 1998 merger of Health Crisis Network (1983) and Community Research Initiative (1989). Care Resource is now South Florida’s oldest and largest HIV/AIDS service organization serving clients in both Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
Since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in South Florida and for 27 years, Care Resource has been dedicated to serving the women, children and men affected and infected by HIV/AIDS and to meeting the changing demographics of the epidemic. The former Health Crisis Network (HCN), founded in 1983 by a group of dedicated volunteers, focused on providing a response to the epidemic with crisis intervention, social support and educational programs. Community Research Initiative (CRI), founded in 1989 pioneered the implementation of community-based clinical trials through its network of physicians across Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Virtually all of the popular anti-retroviral drugs widely used today have been studied by the agency through its clinical research program.
Since merging, the agency has expanded and new services have been added in response to the needs of the epidemic. In 1999 primary medical care was implemented, creating a system to rapidly and effectively triage those identified as HIV positive into a comprehensive system for medical care and supportive services.
Today, clients have access at a one-stop location to primary medical care, clinical trials and research studies, information and referrals, case management, mental health and substance abuse counseling, transportation vouchers, a food bank, home delivered meals and counseling and testing. Furthermore, the agency’s many prevention and education programs go out into the community and engage populations at high risk, affected and/or infected by HIV/AIDS, by disseminating prevention information and connecting those in need to the health care system.
