Chicago House is excited to premiere an all new event fundraiser to support the organization’s ongoing efforts to assist families and individuals affected by HIV and AIDS. “ONE NIGHT STAND” will be an explosive, multi -sensory dance party wrapped around a live concert,” explained Jeremy Hilborn, Chicago House’s Manager of Special Events. “It’s a full buffet of sights and sounds, built around an experiential concert,” Hilborn continued. For its inaugural year, the new event, inspired by a popular dance recording artist and icon Linda Clifford, will feature the singer in a custom designed, immersive nightclub environment.
From grinding go-go boys to a diva belting it with a full band to DJ Mathew Harvat offering up the beats, ONE NIGHT STAND will rock a very transformed Park West on Saturday, September 15th beginning at 8:00 pm.
Chicago House brought some major players to the table in developing the event in its first year. Keith Elliott (Dance for Life Chicago/ Chicago Takes Off) and Tony Savino (Dance for Life Palm Springs) bring over twenty years of experience in performance based fundraising to create this exciting new addition to the Chicago House event calendar.
Over the organization’s 27 year history, events like the Speaker Series Luncheon, Champagne Wrapture, and Brunch & Fashion Show have become synonymous with Chicago House. ONE NIGHT STAND aims to make that same impact, while attracting a new system of support to the organization in an imaginative and fun way.
Tickets to ONE NIGHT STAND start at $35 for balcony seating, and range up to $200. For more information or to purchase tickets, please click here or call 773-248-5200 x303.
About Chicago House
Since 1985, Chicago House has provided permanent housing and supportive services to men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS. Their programs have since expanded to include community case management, substance abuse counseling, HIV prevention, medical adherence and the Midwest’s first employment training and placement program specific to people with HIV. Chicago House also now offers free, anonymous rapid HIV testing. Always at the forefront of new programming, Chicago House will open a facility to reach the at-risk transgender community through permanent housing and support services, including employment training. The facility is expected to open in early 2013.
