WINTER PARTY FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES 2016 DATES, HOST HOTEL
First 20 Rooms Booked at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach Will Have the Resort Fee Waived
Renowned Global Celebration to take place March 2 – 7, 2016
Back by popular demand, the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach will again serve as the host hotel for the 23rd edition of Winter Party Festival when the iconic fundraising event hits South Beach March 2 – 7, 2016. To celebrate the return of Winter Party to the Shelborne, the host hotel will waive the daily $25 resort fee for the first 20 rooms booked at the property. The waived resort fee means free access to the state-of-the-art fitness center, WiFi connections and two beach chairs per day oceanside behind the hotel. In addition to the special promotion, all Winter Party guests staying at the Shelborne will receive two tickets to the Under One Sun Pool Party on Saturday, March 5. Both the host hotel and pool party have sold out three years in a row.
“We’re excited to be back at the Shelborne as they really rolled out the red carpet for our guests last year,” said Justin Bell, who is returning as chair of Winter Party Festival for 2016. “The location is ideal, near all the South Beach action, and the hotel makes an amazing venue for our popular pool party. And with this special promotion, the first 20 rooms booked get the added bonus of a discount.”
As one of Miami’s most celebrated beachfront resorts, Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach features unparalleled views of the Atlantic Ocean in a modern, relaxed setting. Located in the heart of the Art Deco District and within walking distance to Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive, the resort allows Winter Party guests to enjoy the best of what Miami Beach has to offer.
“We are so pleased that the National LGBTQ Task Force has again selected Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach as its official host hotel partner for Winter Party Festival 2016,” said Jonathan Torres, Marketing Manager of Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach. “We look forward to collaborating again with the Task Force to support the LGBTQ community, and could not be more proud to be able to host the occasion at our beautiful property.”
Winter Party Festival 2016 will feature six days of non-stop action, featuring pulse-raising dance parties and welcoming receptions to sophisticated art exhibitions, all designed to celebrate the spirit of the LGBTQ community and its allies. Produced by the National LGBTQ Task Force, Winter Party Festival proceeds — along with proceeds from the National LGBTQ Task Force Gala – Miami — support the important work of the 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 LGBTQ community in South Florida through a grant made by the Task Force to the GLBT Community Projects Fund of The Miami Foundation. Last year, Winter Party Festival accomplished a significant milestone by breaking the $1 million fundraising mark for the event.
