Thank you for considering a partnership with the 2011 Chicago Softball World Series. Building on a rich tradition of hosting world class sporting events and social activities, the Chicago LGBT community has set the bar for excellence and afforded Chicago businesses and corporations, national and local, large and small, to prosper from this loyal demographic.
As recently as 2006, Chicago successfully executed Gay Games VII, an event that welcomed more than 12,000 athletes and spectators to the city and injected upwards of $60 million dollars into the local economy. The Games, which featured an $11 million dollar budget, was the first in history to breakeven thanks to the tireless efforts of its staff and volunteers.
The Chicago 2011 Board of Directors includes several of those key figures from the Gay Games who will build upon that knowledge and experience for the Softball World Series. As the largest annual LGBT sporting event in North America, Series 2011 will draw nearly 4,000 athletes and supporters to Chicago, while providing a significant economic boost. Chicago 2011 offers a unique property for our partners to demonstrate their commitment to diversity, being an employer of choice and/or providing a tremendous marketing and branding opportunity.

The Board of Directors, Committee Chairs and volunteers thank you in advance for your commitment to further enhance the Chicago LGBT sports legacy!
