White Party Moves to Miami Seaquarium
Extends Hours and Changes Days
by Joshua Head

Miami Beach, July 28, 2011 —On July 25, 2011, Care Resource released information to the world about where the next venue for White Party Miami would be held. Not only that, but they've chosen to change the weekend up all together by moving the event to Friday and extendWhite Party Evolution the hours. White Party Week is held during the American Thanksgiving holiday from November 23 to 28, 2011 in Miami, Florida.

The press release reads:

"This November, thousands of guests will descend on Miami for the "Crown Jewel" of HIV/AIDS fundraisers, White Party Week™. Recognized as one of the oldest and largest HIV/AIDS fundraisers in the world, The White Party, just got bigger! Just as the rest of the world is evolving, so is the White Party, and this is a monarch year for many new and exciting changes.

This year's theme Evolution represents the changes made to the event-a party continually evolving as the night progresses. The White Party will offer a whole new concept which is nothing like its predecessor. The event's new home at the Miami Seaqurium is the perfect backdrop for the evolution of the party and offers the opportunity to expand upon the event's production.

Internationally known event producer, Mark Baker has teamed up with Care Resource to bring you an over the top production that will last into the early hours of the next morning. That's right White Party has not only switched venues but has also moved to Friday night and extended the hours to become a 12 hour party that will end Saturday morning."



Back in August of 2010, Care Resource announced that the 25 year tenure at Vizcaya Museum would end after that year's event.  Care Resource stated then that Vizcaya was charging them nearly $50,000 in rental fees as well as limited setup and staging opportunity.  Event producer Mark Baker is best known for his over-the-top productions during Gay Days Orlando and has also produced a number of events in the Miami area in the past.

About White Party Week & Care Resource

Produced by Care Resource, the annual event is a series of internationally acclaimed HIV/AIDS fundraisers - to benefit the men, women and youth affected/infected by HIV/AIDS. White Party Week takes place November 23-28, 2011 in Miami and Miami Beach. White Party Week Miami, started in 1985, also has the moniker of being the most featured AIDS fundraiser, covered by stations around the world. White Party Week Miami has raised millions of dollars for Care Resource, South Florida's oldest and largest HIV/AIDS community service organization. Persons living with HIV/AIDS have had access to services at a "one-stop" location. Recognizing the need for quality medical care for clients' partners and families, as well as others in the community, the Board of Directors of Care Resource made the decision to expand services beyond a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS to provide primary medical services to encompass children, youth, families and seniors with a focus on our lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender (LGBT) community. The Care Resource facility in Ft. Lauderdale has been awarded the designation of a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and both facilities are now providing comprehensive health and support services to address the full health care needs of our pediatric, adolescent and adult populations. As a leader in providing HIV/AIDS disease management control for over 26 years, Care Resource is uniquely positioned to assist our patients in long-term disease management.
