Hundreds of swimsuit-clad revelers partied into the night at Joining Hearts’ 32nd annual pool party to raise money to fight HIV.
The event took place Saturday at Greystone at Piedmont Park. The theme this year was “Celebrate!” and partygoers took it to heart — and maybe played the Joining Hearts drinking game while they were at it.
DJ Andres Vergel handled opening set duties while DJ Rick Braile came on to headline.
It was part of a full weekend of events that included a kickoff party at Heretic, an afterparty at Buckhead Theatre and afterhours at Xion.
The organization has raised $2.5 million for its beneficiaries since its founding in 1987.
