Purple Foundation returns to the The Eagle—it’s time to SCORE!
Purple Foundation is starting out 2015 with the fifth installation of Score, our quarterly party at the Dallas Eagle. Saturday, February 28, DJ Justin Ryan takes over the decks and ignites the energy of the dance floor. Justin has played some of the hottest events around the world including Sydney Mardi Gras, Gay Village Rome, Republika Weekend Brazil, and he headlined Rise, the Purple Party Weekend Pool Party, in 2013. In just over a year, Score has quickly grown into one of Dallas’s most popular and fun nights out, bringing together a diverse and lively crowd in support of local HIV/AIDS organizations.
With its hot dance floor, expansive patio, and friendly staff, The Eagle has become the perfect home for Score. Score is your party—whether you want to let go and dance the night away, grab drinks outside with old friends, or explore the sea of hot friendly faces for new adventures. All we ask is for you be yourself and have a blast doing it!
Join us on Saturday, February 28, for Score with DJ Justin Ryan. The suggested donation at the door is $5, and like all Purple Foundation events, all proceeds go directly to local AIDS organizations. The Eagle will also be donating a portion of its bar sales for the night. Purple Foundation events are always a blast, so save the date and tell your crew to join you for a fantastic night of great music, good people, and a great cause.
And, of course, keep your eyes out for more exciting news around next year’s Purple Party® Weekend—we still have two mind-blowing events to announce. We’re celebrating 15 years of supporting vital local AIDS organizations through the joy and excitement of some of the best dance events in the world.
