Winter Party Festival will feature 20 pulse-raising events, including nine dance parties with world-class DJs and entertainment. Beyond the dance parties, Winter Party Festival features shopping, art and culture and cocktail receptions, all dedicated to fundraising for local and national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality efforts.

This year’s Beach Party will feature legendary DJ Danny Verde from Italy and DJ Grind from San Francisco spinning on the sand along famed Ocean Drive. Additional highlights of this year’s Winter Party Festival include the Under One Sun Pool Party with guest DJs Gustavo Scorpio (Rio de Janeiro) and Seth Cooper (Chicago).

Proceeds from Winter Party Festival and the Miami Recognition Dinner support the important work of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force to build power, take action and create positive, lasting change for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families throughout the country. A significant portion of the proceeds also funds multiple organizations serving the LGBT community in South Florida through a grant made by the Task Force to the GLBT Community Projects Fund of The Miami Foundation.

Last year, the Task Force donated a record-breaking $249,812 to The Miami Foundation’s GLBT Community Projects Fund. The Task Force has also contributed approximately $1.65 million to South Florida grassroots LGBT organizations since 2005.
