Full disclosure: last year when I attended Glamsino Royale, the casino benefit thrown by ActionAIDS, I had a little too much fun. Evidence is provided below …

But in all seriousness, the fundraising evening, which transforms the Hotel Palomar into a high-rolling very gay casino for one night, is one of the best events in the city. This party for a purpose benefits the great work that ActionAIDS does throughout the Philadelphia region: the organization is “committed to creating an AIDS-free generation through a combination of proven strategies,” including “case management, HIV testing, prevention education, supportive housing, HIV treatment as prevention and volunteer services.”

This year’s party is themed “Havana Nights,” and will feature DJ Sharyn Stone (AKA Matt Beirschmidt). Of course, there’s plenty of casino games to try your luck at, and winning chips can be redeemed for raffle tickets to win amazing trips to various Kimpton Hotels across the country. There will be plenty of light bites and cocktails flowing.

Tickets for the February 19th event are $50, which includes open bar. If you purchase before February 1st, you can get two tickets for $75. For more information, click here.
