A big move and a gala dinner celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Chicken Soup Brigade Dear friends of the Gay community:

The Chicken Soup Brigade supporters enjoyed the 30th anniversary and a successful first annual gala fundraiser with a Summer Supper at SODO Park on Saturday. June 7th.

The huge warehouse type building was filled with more than 100 generous party-goers/supporters enjoying wine, cocktails and a chicken dinner.

Silent auctions and drawings were held for various items including a huge table of desserts. Fundraising has always been a successful undertaking, from our early 'Care to Dance' to ongoing Gay Bingo and others.

Proceeds will be put to good use with the new plan already in progress to move part of the Chicken Soup kitchen and food preparation to Georgetown while maintaining food distribution and other client services at the present location.

It is hoped that the successful thrift store will also maintain its present location, although presently I haven't heard of a concrete plan for the store. The major reason for the Georgetown move is getting 'more bang for the buck' in rents or leases, thereby providing more monies for client services.

The Chicken Soup Brigade/Lifelong AIDS Alliance is one of the largest support venues for people with AIDS and also for some low income patients with health difficulties, whose services are maintained with the help of fundraisers and many volunteers including my 17 years of fundraising with 'Jars in Bars' and businesses providing a half million dollars during the early days.

Best wishes,

Leonard (Lenny) Larson
Long-time volunteer and supporter of The Chicken Soup Brigade
