вечеринка на весь город с большим количеством народа, устраиваемая в благотворительных целях (сюда всегда стекается определенный круг лиц).

Насчет этих "пати" велись публичные дискуссии - окупает ли количество собранных во время них денег на борьбу со СПИДом (такой сбор на самом деле происходит, и результаты впечатляют) количество заражений, которые в эти дни случаются. Как и положено, мнения разошлись.
