UPDATE: If you are wondering where we will be in the parade, we are float number 19, though, I am sure it will be tough to miss us!!
We are proud to announce the Chicago Gay Hockey Association will be accompanied by Chicago Blackhawks’ Brent Sopel and the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup in this Annual Chicago Pride Parade on Sunday, June 27!
Due to the historical nature of this event, there is now a space limitation on the number of participants allowed to skate or walk alongside the CGHA float and open participation is no longer valid. We apologize for the inconvenience, however, please note that we strongly encourage those interested in participating, to sign up at http://chicagogayhockey.org/stanley-cup/. If selected, an official confirmation email along with specific details will be sent by Friday (6/25) evening.
We are very thrilled and honored to have Brent Sopel and the Stanely Cup as part of the CGHA’s pride presence and we encourage everyone to share with us in celebration all weekend long. The CGHA will have a booth set up at Pride Fest on both Friday and Saturday with an opportunity for fans to enter a raffle to win an autographed Brent Sopel, Blackhawks’ jersey! Be sure to stop by and show us your support and don’t forget to shout extra loud when we skate by WITH THE STANLEY CUP!
