Joining Hearts kicked off its 33rd fundraising season on Saturday with its annual Valentine’s-themed event Love on the Rocks.
This year’s theme was Reverie, which organizers hoped would make partygoers “reimagine the world if we each elevated our own threshold to love one another, and even ourselves.”
DJ Eric James kept the beats going as the food was served and the drinks flowed at the event at the Frazer Center. A live auction was held as well.
The money raised went toward Joining Hearts’ efforts to provide care and housing assistance for people with HIV in Atlanta.
