SAVE Dadeâ€™s most important fundraiser is re-imagined as Asylum for its 15th anniversary. â€œThe concept was born out of the desire to incorporate the scary and eerie aspects that have become ubiquitous with Halloween, and the double meaning of the word â€œasylumâ€ as a place of sanctuary,â€ explains CJ OrtuÃ±o, SAVE Dadeâ€™s executive director.
The high-octane event boasts a magnificent new location in the heart of Miamiâ€™s Design District at the 4141 Building. With 12,000 square feet and two levels of industrial designed space, 40-ft ceilings and glass elevator towers that bolt towards large skylights creating a stark and dramatic visual image, the 4141 Building promises to be the premiere Halloween space for partygoers this year.
Part zombie infested insane asylum part dance club, Asylum promises to be like no other Halloween event in Miami.
The partyâ€™s guests will be treated to state of the art light shows, macabre interactive performances, a costume contest, and the latest electronic/dance music spun by world class DJs. VIP guests will experience premiere treatment with access to an invitation only pre-event, complimentary valet parking, a VIP exclusive 2nd story dance floor, open bar, private â€œchillâ€ lounge with catered gourmet food and separate DJ .
SAVEâ€™s annual Halloween fundraiser began as an intimate house party in Belle Meade, in 1995. Since then, itâ€™s grown year after year into an A-list event for South Floridaâ€™s LGBT community.
As SAVE Dadeâ€™s largest fundraising event of the year, all money raised at Asylum will fuel SAVEâ€™s efforts in fighting for LGBT equality. Since 1993, SAVE has continued to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals from discrimination, and it has been thanks to the great collaboration of members, volunteers, donors and sponsors at such fundraising events like Asylum, that SAVE Dadeâ€™s momentum keeps going strong.
â€œWe hope that Asylum will help us consolidate the reputation and recognition that our annual Halloween fundraiser has earned throughout these fifteen years as the best Halloween party in South Florida. In the future, instead of saying â€˜Iâ€™m going to SAVE Dadeâ€™s Halloween partyâ€™, people will say â€˜Iâ€™m going to Asylumâ€™, concludes CJ OrtuÃ±o, â€œand everyone will know what that means and want to be there.â€
