CFW holding Internat'l Women's Day Dance March 12

The LBTQ Giving Council of Chicago Foundation for Women ( CFW ) is hosting the 2nd Annual International Women's Day Dance on Saturday, March 12, 7 p.m.-12 a.m. at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture.

Reviving this Chicago tradition last year, the LBTQ Giving Council successfully brought together folks from across the city to celebrate queer and trans* women, and raise dollars for the LBTQ communities.

The LBTQ Giving Council was the first affinity group in Chicago formed to provide grants to organizations and programs that serve LBTQ communities. Since 2008, the Giving Council has awarded more than $95,000 in grants to 12 organizations and programs including Youth Empowerment Performance Project ( YEPP ), a safe space for queer youth experiencing homelessness to explore their history and address their struggles; and Affinity Community Services, a social justice organization working on behalf of black LGBTQ communities. The LBTQ Giving Council provides grants through its Lavender Fund.

"We are thrilled to renew the tradition of the International Women's Day Dance! The Dance has become the Giving Council's biggest fundraiser," said Kim Hunt, Giving Council member. "Come party with us and support groups that are doing great work with and on behalf of queer and trans women!" To purchase tickets or become a sponsor see www.cfw.org/events/ . The event is at 3015 W Division St., with a free parking lot.

CFW is a grantmaking organization dedicated to increasing resources and opportunities for women and girls in the greater Chicago area. To support our philanthropy, the Foundation promotes increased investment in women and girls, raises awareness about their issues and potential, and develops them as leaders and philanthropists.

LGBTQ bowlers prepare for Second City tourney

Registration is now open for the 2016 Second City Open Tournament Chicago ( SCOTCH ), which welcomes LGBTQ bowlers to Chicago to compete for fun and prizes.

The third annual event is March 5-6 at the 40-lane Waveland Bowl, 3700 N. Western Ave.

Last year's tournament drew 140 bowlers ( including 19 women ) from Illinois and 10 other states. This year, organizers hope to increase participation to the maximum capacity of 144 bowlers. Both veteran bowlers and newcomers are invited to participate. Whole teams are welcome as well as partial teams and individuals, which can be matched up with others.

Participants and raffle entrants could win a variety of prizes, including cash awards, a new STORM bowling ball or a STORM bowling bag.

The SCOTCH earlybird registration fee is $109. Feb. 20 is the final day to register.
