6th Annual Masquerade Ball

We invite you to join us for Showdown ~ Breaking Barriers, the 6th Annual Masquerade Ball presented by Balance Tampa Bay and EPIC (Empath Partners in Care), as we confront barriers within our community and recognize that we are stronger when we stand together – even if we are six feet apart!

Saturday, July 31, 2021
Tampa River Center
402 W. Laurel St, Tampa (map)

7 p.m.-8 p.m. VIP Reception
8 p.m.-11 p.m. Doors open for General Admission

This will be a fantastic night of music, dancing, cocktails, bites, auction, friendship and philanthropy.

All proceeds support EPIC, Tampa Bay’s full service HIV/AIDS support organization dedicated to providing high-quality, culturally competent services and a comprehensive continuum of care.

As vaccine eligibility expands in Florida, EPIC and BTB strongly encourages those eligible be vaccinated as recommended by the CDC. Masks will be required for all participants and CDC guidelines will be strictly adhered to.
