On February 4, the fundraising social group Reason to Party celebrated their annual Winter Gala to benefit Maitri, raising $7,000.00 for the beloved organization providing hospice and 24-hour care to folks in the Bay Area living with HIV/AIDS .

The W Hotel was transformed into a sumptuous, enchanting artscape through cutting-edge lighting technology provided by Entire Productions, and the iconic "tree of life" provided by Blueprint Studios. More than 700 guests enjoyed cool beats from DJs Dylan McIntosh and Sebastian Vinet, generous complimentary cocktails, and eye-popping Tapigami—a gigantic art installation made entirely with masking tape!

Reason To Party hosts several parties throughout the year, benefiting a variety of Bay Area nonprofit organizations; for more information, and to find out about the next event, visit ReasonToParty.org.
