Winter Party, the iconic Miami festival aiming at raising funds for the LGBTQ community, will take place from February 28 – March 6, 2018 in Miami Beach- in celebration of its 25th edition.
The festival is produced by the National LGBTQ Task Force, which donates the proceeds to “LGBTQ advocacy and community groups in South Florida through a grant-making process administered by the GLBT Community Projects Fund of The Miami Foundation”, according to the festival’s website.
“In 2016, the Task Force donated a record-breaking $275,000, for a grand total of $2.4 million given back since Winter Party was founded. That money plays an essential role in empowering and elevating our community, and it wouldn’t be possible without you! With your help, let’s move freedom, justice, and equality forward – let’s GIVE BACK.”
