On June 21st, we celebrated our 25th year at Founder’s Day. You can read more about that event in our post from two weeks ago, but we wanted to share this photo of Brother Tom Klein, Shelly Ebert, our executive director Cheryl Potts, and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.
Sober & Proud
We were back in our parking lot to celebrate again the next Saturday, June 28th, with our Sober & Proud event. This event is one of the few sober parties during the Pride festivities. Supported by a grant from the Chicago Department of Public Health, Sober & Proud had a BBQ, a cotton candy machine, music and dancing, a talent show, and HIV testing provided by Chicago House.
AIDS Run & Walk
The next big event we’re getting ready for is the AIDS Run & Walk, which will be Sunday, September 14th at Avrey Field in Grant Park. You can join our team to walk or run with us, or donate to support our programs, at AidsRunWalk.org. Our team name is ‘The Alliance.’ We’ll post some more information about this event soon!
