Chicago House & Social Services Agency helped launched Pride week June 20 with its annual birdhouse auction and cocktail party.
It was a silent auction night as attendees bid on birdhouses and works of art placed all over the interior design retail store. Marc "Moose" Moder manned the turntables as donors sipped Absolut cocktails and enjoyed food from J&L Catering. An all-cinclusive trip to Cancun, Mexico, was raffled off while the agency raised money to support housing for people affected by HIV/AIDS, poverty or gender nonconformity.
