The biggest gay pool party in Atlanta each year can’t happen without sponsors and patrons. Joining Hearts gave thanks to theirs on Sunday at a sky-high cocktail reception and silent auction.

With indoor and outdoor views, the law firm of Nelson Mullins provided the perfect backdrop for organizers to mix and mingle with donors old and new. The event is the last lead-up party as the group hurtles toward the finish line of their 25th year of fundraising for HIV/AIDS organizations.

The signature event, Joining Hearts 25, takes place on July 21 at Piedmont Park pool.
