Red Dress Party San Diego is a celebration that raises awareness and funds for organizations that serve the local HIV/AIDS community; but not your typical fundraising gala, this event is so much more.
Red Dress Party San Diego is a night of music and dancing mixed with charity and fun, where all attendees – and we mean everyone – is required to wear a red dress, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. This serves both as a powerful sign of solidarity and compassion for those affected by HIV/AIDS and a way to unite the crowd in one radiant theme. At this unique celebration we invite everyone to be brave, let loose, and celebrate impact.
RDPSD 2019 will return to the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier… but we are mixing it up! Guests will enter through the bay-side double doors to enter directly into the Pavilion, a 15,000 square foot mega-space that’s all on one level, with room for 1,000 attendees. This Pavilion features 40-foot tall ceilings and massive windows that give views to the San Diego Bay. On the back end of the Pavilion are oversized roll-up doors that open to the View Court — a large outdoor space right on the water. This year, we are renting out the View Court complete with carnival games, activities, seating, and more.
Guests can expect all their favorites, such as live entertainment, DJs, photo booths, on-site HIV testing, and a night of celebration and impact.
This year RDPSD 2019 will be a BIG TOP! In this three-ring circus we invite you to let loose, celebrate impact, and clown around in red. Get ready to channel your inner bearded lady, call the shots like a ringleader, or become a sexy (or spooky) clown. And don’t worry if you’re not dressed in theme; if you’re not in a put-on-a-show-kind of mood, any red dress or dress-like garment (just no pants!) will do. It’s simply there to help you channel your creativity.
This year we aim to raise $45,000. Achieving this goal would make our combined, four-year donation to the San Diego HIV/AIDS community over $130,000! Here are ways you can help get us to our goal and stretch goal:
