Capitol Hill Alano Club needs your help

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

The Capitol Hill Alano Club (CHAC), an organization dedicated to providing a safe place for Seattle's LGBT recovery community, knows a thing or two about helping people. For years, CHAC has held weekly meetings to help members of our community deal with addiction through recovery. Now the CHAC needs your help. The Club recently launched Staying Alive 2010, a call-to-arms to the Seattle recovery community, the Capitol Hill neighborhood, and you, to help keep their doors open.

According to CHAC officials, due to extraordinary expenses for maintenance and repairs on the space they rent, along with diminished meeting and membership income, the organization is in danger of closing. "We are seeking emergency help from you," CHAC posted on their website, www.chacseattle.org.

Bottom line is, if CHAC is unable to raise $15,000 by August, they will have to shut their doors.

Each year, the Club has two major fundraisers to close the monthly gap in income and expenses. Although CHAC raised $5,863 at Bat 'n' Rouge XII, the amount was considerably less than what the Club's officials were hoping for. The income fell far short of what CHAC needs to stay afloat until the November Kringle's Korner Christmas tree fundraiser.
