Annual Valentine fundraiser benefits Atlanta HIV housing

Love on the Rocks

Love on the Rocks, the annual Valentine’s Day-themed fundraiser for Joining Hearts, returns for its sixth year Sunday, Feb. 10, at Room & Board Furniture in West Midtown.

The benefit is the first of the year for Joining Hearts, a nonprofit dedicated to raising money for housing support for Atlantans living with HIV and AIDS. Joining Hearts also organizes the annual Change of Seasons spring dance as well as the namesake Joining Hearts, the summer’s biggest (and gayest) pool party fundraiser held each year at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park.

Kerry Loftis, president of Joining Hearts, told GA Voice said this year’s fundraiser should be the largest Love on the Rocks event yet.
