CHAC throws thank-you BBQ

by James Whitely - SGN Staff Writer

Capitol Hill Alano Club Thank-You BBQ September 12 1-5 PM Volunteer Park

The Capitol Hill Alano Club (CHAC), a substance abuse support network, is holding a thank-you barbeque at Volunteer Park to thank the community for reaching out in the Alano Club's 'Staying Alive Campaign.'

'On behalf of the Board of Directors, thank you for all the service you have done and are doing,' said Greg M., President of the Board of the Alano Club.

CHAC is an organization dedicated to providing a safe place for Seattle's LGBT community in recovery. CHAC holds multiple weekly meetings that support 12-step groups and provide a safe and permanent meeting place for LGBT people.

According to CHAC officials, due to expensive maintenance and various problems with the space they rent, along with a decline in fundraising, the organization was put in a dangerous place - if CHAC was unable to raise $15,000 by August 1, they'd have had to shut their doors for good.

They raised $26,723.

The community came out in droves to CHAC fundraisers, spearheaded by local drag queen Aleksa Manila, who works in the recovery community, and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Abbey of St. Joan and the Order of Benevolent Bliss of Portland, as well as other members of the community. CHAC also received many contributions through the mail and online from members of the community.

The CHAC "Thank-You BBQ" at Volunteer Park on Sunday, September 12, will run from 1-5 p.m. by the Rose Garden and Conservatory. The event is free.

"The board hopes that you will join us in a celebration of the Capitol Hill Alano Club," said Greg M. "The Club is alive and moving into a fabulous future because of you!"

CHAC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to reaching out to Seattle's LGBT community in recovery. For more information, visit www.chacseattle.org.
