Friends of the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame (GLHF) held its first-ever Celebrity Bowl at Waveland Bowl June 9.
The Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame ( www.GLHallofFame.org ) is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation that annually holds an induction ceremony for its honorees. Chicago is the only known municipality that so honors its LGBT residents.
The event, which was organized by Hall of Famer Dick Uyvari, raised more than $10,000.
GLHF is privately funded through individuals, businesses and organizations, along with its 2012 sponsors, including Absolut Vodka, Boi Magazine, Center on Halsted, Circuit Night Club, House of Blues, J&L Catering, International Mr. Leather, Miller Lite, Napleton's Automotive Group, Phil Hannema, Remy Martin V, Michael Leppen, Rick Aguilar Studios, Sidetrack, Supergurl Images, Waveland Bowl and Windy City Media Group (the sponsor list is still in formation).
