The fundraising force that is Ready 4 Hope continued its big weekend of partying with a purpose on Saturday at Jungle with powerhouse DJ Roland Belmares. 

Bully Wear provided those signature red shirts, Music Matters Productions powered the light show and Belmares delivered from the DJ booth for the Red Party. The night, like the slate of parties all weekend, raised money for Ready 4 Hope, which in turn donates it to AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run. 

Since Ready 4 Hope's inception in 2013, they group has donated more than $88,000 to AID Atlanta. That includes the more than $45,000 raised last year through its weekend of parties and one sexy pool party. The total reached $51,000 by the AIDS Walk in October, a new record for any fundraising team in the walk's 24-year history.

The weekend of events this year included a kickoff party on Friday at Heretic, late nights with Xion and a closing party at Park Tavern.
