CHICAGO Windy City Times will present Pride Day at Wrigley Field Sunday, Sept. 4, 1:20 p.m. when the Chicago Cubs take on the Pittsburgh Pirates. The sales of tickets for the Labor Day weekend game will benefit six local LGBT and AIDS charities.
Pride Day is presented in partnership with the national gay softball world series taking place through Sept. 3 in the Windy City. Thousands of athletes will be in Chicago as part of the annual NAGAAA world series tournament.
The organizations which will receive a portion of the proceeds are: AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Center on Halsted, Equality Illinois, Howard Brown Health Center/Lesbian Community Care Project, GLAAD Chicago Leadership Council and Lambda Legal.
The media partners for Pride Day at Wrigley are Windy City Times, Nightspots, GoPride.com and Grab Magazine.
The winner of the Windy City Gay Idol contest will be given the chance to sing at Pride Day, and the NAGAAA world series Chicago host committee will select a person to throw out the ceremonial pitch for the Sept. 4 game.
Tickets are $50, and they are all for bleacher seats. The price includes tax, shipping, and a portion donated to charity. Deadline for ticket purchase is Aug. 15, 2011.
