Please support The Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame's mission by making a tax-deductible contribution sponsoring Gary Liss to bowl in the 2020 Dick Uyvari Memorial Celebrity Bowl Fundraising event, which will take place on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at 10:00am at the Waveland Bowl, 3700 N. Western Ave., Chicago.
Each bowler at the event has a goal to raise a minimum of $250.00 for the Friends of the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame to fund operations including the Hall of Fame's historic induction ceremony, to be held this year in June of 2020 at the Chicago History Museum.
About the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame
The Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame is both a historic event and an exhibit. Through the Hall of Fame, residents of Chicago and the world are made aware of the contributions of Chicago’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the community's efforts to eradicate homophobic bias and discrimination.
Since our inception in 1991, our mission has continued to expand. In addition to the selection of each year’s new inductees a large portion of our time is devoted to being custodian of records for the exemplary inductees we have honored. As time passes, it is our goal to see that the achievements of our predecessors are not lost or forgotten.
Friends of the Chicago LGBT of Fame is a not-for-profit Illinois corporation formed in 2009 to aid the Hall of Fame. It is recognized as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions to it are tax-deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law. The organization is now responsible, in cooperation with the City of Chicago, for all Hall of Fame operations.
