Compass Community Center’s Stonewall Ball is back for 2022

The Compass Community Center continues to make good truly fun with the return of the Stonewall Ball. The first LGBGTQ+ event of the summer in South Florida celebrates its historic 20th anniversary fundraising party at a new location on Saturday, June 25: the Cox Science Center and Aquarium (4801 Dreher Trail N) in West Palm Beach.

Under the theme of an “electric disco”, the Stonewall Ball 2022 will be an evening of food and drink, a silent auction, live entertainment and an awards ceremony, all on behalf of Pride for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. There will be a VIP indoor reception as well as an outdoor dance party in an electric disco forest.

Fay What? ! & the Stonewall Ball

Hilarious radio and TV personality Fay What?! (aka Fay Carmona) — a proud, proud Latina diva who speaks out on every topic imaginable and entertains while doing it — is the evening’s emcee. With experience running a blog and YouTube channel, as a vocal animal advocate and owner of Fay’s Furry Animals, she’s no stranger to South Florida happenings and the organization of a big show.

All funds raised at the Stonewall Ball will go to the Compass Community Center, paying for programs such as HIV/AIDS insurance premiums, co-pay programs, peer support groups, youth groups, resources and transgender support, mental/brain health services, free HIV testing and cultural competency training for organizations of all sizes.
