Here are some photos of the Pink Party 2015 at the Hotel Monaco. The Pink Party is a fundraiser for the Utah AIDS Foundation and raises money to help those living with HIV/AIDS in Utah. I’ve been the event photographer for a few years now. The party is always fun and it helps kick off the Utah Pride weekend.
Food is prepared by the folks at Bambara, the restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel. I’ve been there and Bambara’s food is amazing and top notch. The appetizers are always delicious and creative.
And there were some festive cookies… don’t stare too long you might become offended.
And I ran into Kevin. He is the one on the right. He and I were freshman together at BYU. Small world.
I’ve been bumping into DJ Lishus quite a bit it seems. Parties and weddings, he is a popular guy.
There were some games to win prizes. Some of the prizes were gift certificates to Bambara and overnight stays at the Hotel Monaco. Those alone are reason to try your hand at a game of Twister or the hula hoop contest.
The Hotel Monaco donates a lot to put on these events and fundraisers. They donate overnight stays to the silent auction. I even tried bidding on a few hotel nights in New York. I lost but the Utah AIDS Foundation won out with great support from the community.
