Fan Club Sponsorships

WHAT:  Chicago will play host to the 35th Annual Gay Softball World Series (GSWS) in 2011.  The GSWS is the world’s largest annual GLBT sporting event that brings together more than 4,000 participants and fans from 37 leagues in North America.

WHEN:  The World Series takes place from August 29 to September 3, 2011.

WHY:  Hosting the World Series is another chapter in Chicago’s long and rich GLBT sports community and an opportunity to showcase our amazing city.  An event of this size and scope, which includes opening and closing ceremonies, numerous social events and over 1,200 softball games over 6 days, is only possible with your support.  In addition, through the Annual Talent Show and other events, the World Series fundraises for two local charities.
