With everyone staying at home, more and more people have used facetime and video calls to stay connected with loved ones—and it’s made for a lot of virtual parties.

In fact, according to a new survey by Evite, over 6.5 million people have been invited to a virtual party through their platform since March. (That’s more than 10,000 percent year over year growth.) The survey also found that over 780,000 guests have been invited to virtual baby showers and sprinkles, while more than 262 guests have been invited to virtual bridal showers or bachelor and bachelorette parties and 127,000 guests have been invited to virtual weddings.

But which cities partied the most virtually? The survey found that New York City is not dead and was one of ten cities that took advantage of the virtual party scene. Below, the top cities for virtual parties:

  • New York, NY
  • Dallas, TX
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • San Diego, CA
  • Chicago, IL
  • Houston, TX
  • Washington, D.C.

Certain states opted for car parades instead. The top ones to do so are:

  • California - 19,000 events
  • Texas - 10,000 events
  • Illinois - 6,000 events
  • Florida - 4,000 events
  • Maryland - 4,000 events
  • New York - 4,000 events

Giving back has also been a big part of 2020, and the survey found that Evite donations have seen a spike, raising $1.7 million for nonprofit organizations and personal causes across the country this year. Some of these include:

  • $48,787 for Australia Fire relief fund
  • $46,272 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
  • $18,440 for Project Beautiful–Inside and Out
  • $16,357 for Worthy of Love
  • $16,121 for Alzheimer’s Association National Office

The survey anticipates virtual parties will only increase as the holidays approach, with more people doing virtual Halloween parties and Thanksgiving dinners. To read the full report, click here.
