Home #Hwoodtimes Dear White Party Family,

Dear White Party Family,

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing of beloved White Party founder Jeffrey Sanker.
For more than four decades, Jeffrey’s zest for life and love of celebration drove him to create a safe haven for the LGBTQ+ community to come together and celebrate our unique individuality and collective magic.
He was named the Godfather of Parties, and to honor his unforgettable life, the White Party legacy will continue in Palm Springs and Puerto Vallarta through the Jeffrey Sanker White Party Foundation.
We will continue to celebrate the extraordinary life of Jeffrey Sanker and the legacy he built and shared with us all, through our future White Party events.
Thank you, Jeffrey, for all you gave to us. We love you, miss you and will continue to honor your legacy.
With great affection
Chris Diamond
