2017 Celebration of Friends Weekend

July 20 - 23

Ft. Lauderdale, FL

How Much?


Event Information

Silver daddies, polar bears and silver foxes are some of the names used to describe the men who gather for our annual festivities. In the past, these were the guys who were forced to hide their passions and identities because revealing their true selves would have cost them their jobs, got them kicked out of the military, banished them from their churches and gotten them ostracized by society in general. These are the very same men who fought in the streets of New York outside a small bar called Stonewall - the very same men who stood their ground until they forced society not only to accept them as they were, but to let them live their lives freely, loving those they needed to love.

A typical Celebration consists of several hundred men registering into our host hotel, then meeting each morning for fellowship and a hearty breakfast. Afternoons are filled with site seeing excursions to local points of interest then sun bathing by the pool. Educational seminars and lectures are also offered and conducted by qualified doctors, lawyers and experts in their fields. Discussions and debates can be heard from a variety of groups gathering in small klatches, be it chapters of the Prime Timers World Wide or members or other similiar groups. Nights are filled with optional trips to nearby bars and restaurants or just relaxing times with a few good friends.
