The Compass Community Center is continuing to make doing good really fun with the return of the Stonewall Ball. South Florida’s premier LGBGTQ+ event of summer is celebrating its landmark 20th anniversary fundraising party at a new location on Saturday, June 25: the Cox Science Center and Aquarium (4801 Dreher Trail N) in West Palm Beach.
Themed as an “electric disco,” the 2022 Stonewall Ball will be an evening of food and drinks, a silent auction, live entertainment and an awards ceremony, all in the name of Pride for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. There will be a VIP indoor reception as well as an outdoor dance party in an Electric Disco Forest.
Fay What?! & the Stonewall Ball
Hilarious radio and television personality Fay What?! (aka Fay Carmona) — an out and proud Latina diva who speaks her mind on any topic imaginable and is entertaining while doing it — is serving as the night’s Mistress of Ceremonies. With experience running a blog and YouTube channel, as a vocal animal advocate and owner of Fay’s Furry Animals, she’s no stranger to appearing at South Florida events and putting on a great show.
All funds raised at the Stonewall Ball will go towards the Compass Community Center, paying for programs such as HIV/AIDS insurance premiums, co-pay programs, peer-support groups, youth groups, transgender resources and support, mental/brain health services, free HIV testing, and cultural competency training for organizations of all sizes.
