imageNew Year’s Eve revelers toasted the holiday and Joining Hearts with a night of thumping beats at the Heretic on Saturday.

Mike Pope, a regular fixture at Joining Hearts’ events throughout the year, manned the DJ booth for the party. A portion of the ticket sales benefited Joining Hearts, which raises funds for HIV agencies through a series of events including their massive pool party at Piedmont Park each July.

The non-profit, which put on its Santa hats last month to collect toys for children in need, also raised more than $4,200 through Party Like A Rockstar New Year’s Eve 6.0 at Amsterdam.

On Sunday, the Heretic hosted a New Year’s Day Tea Dance from Carioca Productions with sexy DJ Micky Friedmanm. Up next for Heretic: DJ Chad Jack for Halfway to Wonderworld on Jan. 14.
