MIAMI, FL – February 28, 2011 – The 2011 Winter Party Festival announces the launch of its first iPhone app: “WPF ‘11.” Just in time for this year’s events, the free WPF ‘11 app allows subscribers to follow the Winter Party Facebook feed, view the schedule of official events, purchase event tickets, access contact information and share app content with a user’s phonebook contacts.
To download the WPF ‘11 app, simply visit the iPhone app store and search for “WPF ‘11.” Developed by SeekWay Technologies, the WPF ‘11 app helps users keep up-to-date on the activities happening at this year’s Winter Party Festival, March 2 - 7.
“The Winter Party app is the perfect way to manage all the excitement of Winter Party Festival in real time,” said Chad Richter, Winter Festival Chair. “With so many events and parties happening around the clock, this app ensures users won’t miss a thing and will be able to enjoy their experience in Miami Beach to the fullest.”
Produced by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Winter Party Festival raises funds to build power, take action and create change for the LGBT community. Two-thirds of the net proceeds generated from Winter Party Festival go to work locally through grants administered by the Miami Foundation (formerly the Dade Community Foundation), while the remaining one third goes to support The Task Force’s efforts nationally. Since its inception in 1994, Winter Party Festival, along with The Task Force’s annual Recognition Dinner, has raised more than $2.2 million for LGBT organizations in South Florida.
Tickets to Winter Party Festival 2011 are available individually or as part of discounted, multi-event passes. For more information, to purchase tickets and passes, or to check out the complete schedule of events, visit www.winterparty.com.
About The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force:
The mission of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is to build the grassroots power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. We do this by training activists, equipping state and local organizations with the skills needed to organize broad-based campaigns to defeat anti-LGBT referenda and advance pro-LGBT legislation, and building the organizational capacity of our movement. Our Policy Institute, the movement’s premier think tank, provides research and policy analysis to support the struggle for complete equality and to counter right-wing lies. As part of a broader social justice movement, we work to create a nation that respects the diversity of human expression and identity and creates opportunity for all.
