Promoter/producer Will Clark announced in a press release this week that the 5th Annual Bad Boys Pool Party: Palm Springs Edition, held May 7, raised a record $64,000 for AIDS organization L.A. Shanti. The daylong event where gay-porn fans get to mingle with porn stars has raised nearly $325,000 over the past seven years. There have been ten parties (five in Los Angeles and five in Palm Springs) since the fundraiser's beginning in 1998.
An additional $13,000 was raised for other charities over the Pool Party weekend by four related events that included Michael Brandon's Inappropriate Behavior Party and the 2nd Annual Pec-a-Palooza.
Bad Boys attending the Pool Party included Tag Adams, Rod Barry, Bastian, Brad Benton, Michael Brandon, Caesar, Nick Capra, Ben Damon, Andy Hunter, Eric Hunter, Brandon Lee, Jason Ridge, Jack Ryan, Jacob Slader, Michael Soldier, Enrico Vega, and Bret Wolfe.
The next Bad Boys fundraisers will take place in New York (Bad Boys on the Hudson), July 3, and San Francisco (Bad Boys by the Bay), July 30.
