The “All-White Beach Gala,” sponsored in part by the Town of Hamburg, the Gateway Building, in Blasdell, and The Blu Label Hip Hop Magazine, takes place Saturday, August 18, 1:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., at Woodlawn Beach in Blasdell, located only 5 miles south of downtown Buffalo. Partial event proceeds will benefit the ECMC Trauma/Burn Treatment Center.
PH Group Events’ executive director Monte Russell, who credits ECMC with saving his life after a suffering a devastating injury several years ago, says the gala will provide those in attendance with an island resort-like experience sure to amaze.
“We’ve been planning this event for some time now,” says Russell. “We wanted to provide professionals throughout Western New York with a fun filled, upscale atmosphere that complements their everyday lifestyle while giving back to a worthy cause.”
The gala will showcase live neo-soul, soft rock, and jazz music along with DJ and dance ensembles. Games, contests, showcases and raffles will take place on the Woodlawn beachfront. The event’s headliners, The Rockaz, a popular six man Buffalo-based band, will provide an eclectic blend of rocking soul, dub, reggae, ska, R&B, and funk.
Other talented Buffalo performers, including saxophonist Will Holton, reggae artist Neville Francis, percussionist Pippy and singer Carl Smith have also been included as part of the beachside performance lineup.
For those seeking an added touch of comfort and relaxation, PH Group Events is offering VIP cabanas which accommodate up to five guests.
“The PH Group Events staff understands that life can be extremely stressful at times,” says Russell. “So we encourage everyone who can appreciate the finer things in life to bring your shades, come dressed in fresh white fabrics, prepare to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view, and leave the rest up to us.”
Tickets are priced at $30 per guest. Five VIP cabanas, which accommodate a party of five, are available for $250.
