Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel made a friendly wager with Ann Arbor, Michigan, Mayor Christopher Taylor on the outcome of the March 31 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Final Four matchup between Chicago's Loyola University and the University of Michigan in San Antonio, Texas.
The mayors will wager local delicacies on the outcome of the game, and the losing mayor will also make a donation to a charity of the winning counterpart's choice: Chicago's Becoming a Man ( BAM ) youth mentoring program or the Jim Toy Community Center, an Ann Arbor LGBTQ resource for advocacy, education and community.
If the Loyola Ramblers are victorious, Taylor will send Michigan's Zingerman's Georgia Reuben sandwich, his favorite. If the Michigan Wolverines win, Emanuel will send corned beef and pastrami from Chicago's Manny's Deli.
The center is named after Jim Toy, who, according to the organization's website, was "the first publicly 'out' man in Michigan ( 1970 ). [He] established the first campus center in history devoted to the support of sexual minority group members."
