The BCS ended after the 2013 season and was replaced by the current College Football Playoff.

Affordable Hotel Near Miami White Party

Find your affordable hotel near Miami White Party at Comfort Suites Miami. Miami White Party is an annual fundraiser party for HIV/AIDS research. Co-founder Frank Wager chose the all-white clothing theme because, as he said, "White stands for purity. White is elegant, non-political, non-combative and makes people look just plain beautiful." The very first White Party began many years ago as AIDS began decimating the gay population. Frank Wager and Jorge Suarez began planning an event they hoped would raise awareness and money to help fight HIV/AIDS in South Florida.

Frank Wagner died of AIDS in 1994 when he was only 42 years old. "One thing Frank wanted to do was reach out to young people, to get out the message about safe sex," said Barbara Shack, his widow. "And it turned into this fabulous party." Throughout the years, White Party has attracted celebrities including Madonna, Calvin Klein, Jennifer Lopez, Nell Carter, Yoko Ono, Expose and Cyndi Lauper.

The one-night fundraiser has evolved into a week of events that kicks off in late November with events in Miami and Miami Beach. Most of the parties are geared to gay men from all over the globe, but there are several events for lesbians and mixed crowds as well.

The friendly staff at our hotel in Miami will be happy to provide more information about Miami White Party when you spend the night with us.
