Evening in Paradise - CARNAVAL!


On Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 7:00pm, The Pride Center will collaborate with the City of Wilton Manors to present Evening in Paradise – Carnaval! Proceeds benefit The Pride Center‘s vital programs and services along with Wilton Manor’s Island City Foundation. Evening in Paradise, now in its third year, has grown to represent the signature Spring fundraising and entertainment event for The Center and the community.

Throughout the evening, guests will be entertained and delighted by a little bit of Rio de Janeiro at the Richardson House in Wilton Manors. Samba dancers, food, music and decorations will tantalize the senses. Be a part of this exciting party and celebrate Carnaval! created by Bobby Kyser of Panache Style! “We are so excited to work together with the City of Wilton Manors and return to the wonderful venue of the Richardson House”, says Robert Boo, CEO of The Pride Center. “Bobby Kyser and his team are truly amazing. His visions always make a ‘WOW’ statement, and this year he has promised not to disappoint you.”

Over 500 people have attended Evening in Paradise over the last two years, raising more than $100,000. Returning as co-chairs of the annual, successful event are Jim Walker, Lee Rubin, Joe Guerrero and Irwin Drucker.

The Pride Center‘s Mission is to “provide a welcoming, safe space–an inclusive home–that celebrates, nurtures and empowers the LGBTQ communities and our friends and neighbors in South Florida.” Last year, over 25,000 people attended Center activities; outreach activities over the past year directly impacted another 30,000+ individuals in South Florida.
