What better way to recover from the beefcake parade that is Joining Hearts than to spend the day after the massive party with a purpose lounging in a decidedly low-key affair.

So, Joining Hearts – never one to miss a chance to develop another successful event – hosted its 1st Annual Day After Recovery Pool Party at a private residence in LaVista Park on Sunday. There were poolside hunks – just not in the same number as a day earlier – along with cocktails, noshes and music courtesy DJ Sean Mac.

Last year’s tally of $125,000 helped pushed the non-profit’s giving to more than $1.15 million since its inception nearly 25 years ago.
