Caracole is adding extra attitude for its fourth Party in Plaid.

The annual fundraiser has evolved from its original plaid only, to plaid plus polka dots, to plaid and paisley in the first three years.

Now punk joins the party.

Party in Plaid and Punk will feature a live band, cocktails, dinner by the bite by Jeff Thomas Catering, a fashion show and a dance party hosted by DJ Pillo.  

Lacking a little attitude of your own? Local hairstylists and MAC cosmetics will be set up on site to add a little punk to your look. A punk pop-up shop will provide ripped T-shirts, safety pins and all the red tartan to complete your edgy ensemble.

Founded in 1987, Caracole was the first licensed care facility in Ohio for adults living with HIV/AIDS. Proceeds from the party will help support Caracole’s mission of providing housing and services for individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS. 

Tickets start at $40 for young professionals and $75 for general admission.
