Joining Hearts shines with a skintastic poolside blowout

Add this share

Joining Hearts marked 31 years of raising money to fight HIV by hosting its annual poolside extravaganza at the Greystone at Piedmont Park on Saturday. 

This year’s event — titled “Shine” — featured DJ/producer GSP all the way from Greece, with an opening set by Atlanta’s own DJ Mike Pope. As always, the night ended with a fireworks display lighting up Midtown.

The boys kept the party going later that night at Heretic with a set by DJ Isaac Escalante. Who knows how many made it that far if they played the Joining Hearts drinking game though.
