Sometimes we at Tulip Toy Gallery get the opportunity to collaborate with community organizations that benefit vital programs here in Chicago. Last Monday, November 15th, we had a great time sponsoring Chances Dances, a monthly dance party put on by Chances Dances at The Subterranean in Wicker Park—just up the street from our newest store. Chances is a group whose goal it is to bring together the factionalized LGBTIQ communities–and boy do they have fun doing it! We raffled off two gift baskets raising over two-hundred dollars for Howard Brown, a local organization whose mission it is to promote the well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons through the provision of healthcare and wellness programs. Chances always welcomes people from all gender expressions and brings the good energy in with featured Djs and a local feel. On this particular Monday night, the dance floor was packed. Thank you Chances and Thank you to all the folks who came out to support Howard Brown!
Community service never felt so good.
