35th Anniversary Gala Sponsors

The 35th Anniversary Gala benefits the LAGBAC Foundation, LAGBAC’s 501(c)(3) charitable arm that provides education to both the public and legal professionals about legal issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. Through its educational initiatives and scholarship programs, the LAGBAC Foundation seeks to improve access to the legal and judicial system for the LGBTQ+ community. In achieving this goal, the LAGBAC Foundation offers annual scholarships, awarded to local LGBTQ+ law students working in otherwise unpaid legal internships with organizations dedicated to promoting and supporting the LGBTQ+ community. The proceeds will go to fund these scholarships and LGBTQ+ legal education.

We extend the biggest gratitude to the sponsors of the 35th Anniversary Gala.  It is through these sponsors that the best and most unique opportunities are provided to support the LAGBAC Foundation’s mission and showcases a commitment to diversity and equality.

We invite you to sponsor the 35th Anniversary Gala of LAGBAC – Chicago’s LGBTQ+ Bar Association at the Peninsula Hotel on Friday, September 23, 2022. We will celebrate 35 years of LAGBAC – the country’s oldest bar association dedicated to serving the LGBTQ+ community.

The purpose of LAGBAC is to connect the legal community, including law students, lawyers, and judges, with organizations at the forefront of LGBTQ+ equality. Since its inception, we have passed nondiscrimination laws, civil unions and, most recently, same-sex marriage. LAGBAC has been instrumental in these victories, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for many of Chicago’s LGBTQ+ organizations in this fight. Your support is needed now more than ever!

The 35th Anniversary Gala will benefit the LAGBAC Foundation, LAGBAC’s 501(c)(3) charitable arm that provides education to both the public and legal professionals about legal issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community.
