On Saturday, June 25, Alexian Brothers Bonaventure House teamed up with Chicago House to host the third annual Sober & Proud Luau. The Sober & Proud Luau boasted the title ‘The Only Sober Outdoor Tea Dace and BBQ’. Over 150 guests came out to eat delicious food, dance to performances by DJ Jim Belanger and DJ Vernimal and celebrate Chicago Pride Week 2011. This year, guests also received resources about STI and HIV prevention and had the opportunity to take part rapid HIV testing.
The Sober & Proud Luau offers a safe, sober and celebratory atmosphere for all those wishing to partake in Chicago Pride Week. This event is of special importance to Pride Week celebrants who are currently in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction and to all those who support them.
Be sure to attend next year’s Sober & Proud Luau!
