On Saturday, October 29th, SAVE Dade will host its 17th annual fundraiser extravaganza Hellrotika: Seed of the Beast. Tickets are now on sale for those who dare attend the year's hottest fundraiser at Jungle Island's Sabal Palm Courtyard.
Last year, Hellrotika: Circus of Lost Souls brought out more than 1,200 partygoers and even more are expected to attend this year's celebration/fundraiser/horror show, which is praised as the "premier" Halloween event in South Florida.
This year's event is planned as a perfect combination of dance party and immersive multi-media with macabre interactive performances, a costume contest, food vendors and the latest dance music played by local night club DJ's that include Pabel Lima, Doug Jackson and MIIK.
“We hope that this year's fundraiser will help us reach new audiences and take the SAVE Dade mission to greater heights. Not only have we sponsored a great Halloween party for the last 16 years, but we've successfully created an environment of inclusion and acceptance that goes beyond the limits of the LGBT Community,” said CJ Ortuño, SAVE Dade's Executive Director.
Hellrotika: Seed of the Beast general admission tickets will be $40 in advance, $60 after October 21st and at the door. Cocktails and food will be available for purchase. The VIP experience includes premium open bar and hors d'oeuvres served in an exclusive VIP area. Tickets are $125 in advance and $150 after October 21st and at the door. Free valet parking is included. All VIP ticket holders will also receive a special gift bag.
Tickets are available now online at hellrotika.com or by phone at (305)751-7283. Jungle Island is located at 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail | Miami, Florida 33132. All money raised at Hellrotika will fuel SAVE's efforts in fighting for LGBT equality.
