facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


The annual Dick Uyvari bowling tournament to benefit for the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame will take place Saturday, June 3, 2017, at Waveland Bowl, 3700 N. Western Ave.

The annual benefit is sponsored by the Friends of the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame, a nonprofit that raises funds for the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame itself—the first LGBT Hall of Fame launched by a city in the world.

"We are excited to honor the legacy of Dick Uyvari," said event co-chairs Kathy Caldwell and Darrick Johnson. "Dick helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for various charities over the years, including for AIDS groups, Gay Games VII in 2006, and most recently the Hall of Fame. Dick and his late partner Joe La Pat are both inductees into the Hall of Fame for their commitment to the LGBT community."

People can support the event by both bowling and raising pledges from friends, or they can donate to a bowler or the event itself. More than 30 bowlers are registered. For information contact bowling@glhalloffame.org or call 773-459-8337.

The free event starts with registration at 10 a.m. followed by bowling at 11 a.m., and wrap-up at noon. A continental breakfast is provided by Ann Sather restaurant.

Donations can be sent to Friends of the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame, 3712 N. Broadway, #637, Chicago, Illinois 60613-4235. The organization is a 501-c-3 nonprofit. Online donations can be made through Paypal. Those sponsoring a bowler can indicate their name on the memo line of the check, or in the additional information link on Paypal: tinyurl.com/mwow4kc .

In addition to Caldwell and Johnson, event organizers include Gary Chichester, Marcia Hill, Owen Keehnen, Jack Hazan, Israel Wright and Garrett White.

Sponsors of the LGBT Hall of Fame include Sam Coady, Phil Hannema, Michael Leppen, Richard Pfeiffer and Timothy K. Frye, Bill Pry, Richard Turner, Rick Aguilar Studios, Ann Sather Restaurant, BOI Magazine, Center on Halsted, Chicago History Museum, ChicagoPride.com, Grab Magazine, Hall's, House of Blues, International Mr. Leather, J&L Catering, Morten Group, Napleton's Northwestern, Sidetrack, Supergurl Images, Waveland Bowl and Windy City Times.
