Going to an event where the dress code calls for white feels different and extraordinary because that color attire is rarely requested for a swanky event. It reminds me of the infamous Diddy White Party in the Hamptons, a party where guests were able to catch a glimpse of New York's high society enjoying each other's company, including the notorious Martha Stewart.

The White Hot Summer Night Party at Eddie V's Prime Seafood is the closest Tampa will see to Diddy's epic soiree with live music, celebrities, cocktails and Eddie V's fabulous food.

Over the year's I've bumped into several celebrities at this event, from N' Sync's Joey Fatone to professional sports stars and more. The best thing about this event, however, is the cause driving the experience!

The White Hot Summer Night Party benefits the Debartolo Family Foundation.

Since 2001, the DeBartolo Family Foundation has provided hope to less fortunate individuals and charities in need of support in the Tampa Bay area. Their devotion to our community remains steadfast and vigorous. The Eddie V's White Hot Summer Night Party is the foundation's primary fundraiser for the year.

My employer, Nationwide Title Clearing, is a devoted contributor to the Debartolo Family Foundation and their mission in the Tampa Bay area, as I result I get to attend this one-of-a-kind party, I hope to see you. Find me! I'm the shorter one in the middle.

This year's event takes place Thursday night, August 24th beginning at 6:30 pm.
