Host the Largest Black and White Weekend for Charity and Wellness in the World!


Orlando, FL – I’m in. Events. and BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation are gearing up to host over 800 supporters from all over Central Florida and beyond. The event will span across 2 days and 1 incredible night at the Rosen Plaza to celebrate life and a great cause while promoting wellness year-round and below is the reason why.


Black and White Weekend was first envisioned in an ICU hospital bed in 2000 when a near fatal case of pneumonia almost took Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and UCF Hall of Famer Heissam “I’m in” Jebailey’s life away. Immediately prior to his miracle surgery that cured him, he envisioned Black and White colors and making it out alive to host a big event for family and friends while giving back to the community.


“It was the most trying time in my life but thanks to God, my family, friends and great doctors at the time, I’m still standing today. Ever since then I wanted to host an event so big that anyone could come to forget about their daily problems and stresses while having fun, living life to the fullest and reminding them to take care of themselves daily. It took me until 2010 to get it started but now the true story behind it is being told.” said Heissam “I’m in” Jebailey.


“BASE Camp depends on community partners to help raise awareness and much-needed funds to continue our ongoing programs,” said Terri Jones- Robbins, President of BASE Camp. “The Annual Black and White Weekend provides vital support and we are truly honored to continuously be selected for such a meaningful and prominent event!”


Presented by I’m in. Events, The 9th Annual Black and White Weekend (Cirque Edition) for Charity and Wellness will begin at 8:30 p.m. on Friday May 11 through Saturday, May 12, 2018. Admission is only $45 in advance ($60 at the door IF any are left) with access to the entire weekend and will include many food and drink specials, music, photo booth, ongoing entertainment, parking, donation and so much more.
