The San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus (SDGMC) has been bringing harmony to America’s Finest City for 30 years.

That dedication will continue with the $10,000 matching grant they received from the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation (SDHDF) on April 27, 2016.

 SDGMC’s Executive Director Bob Lehman said that the money means more than just a bestowal upon the chorus, it also ensures the community will continue to receive uplifting messages and acknowledgment through musical entertainment.   

“We are so incredibly grateful to the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation for helping support our musical mission of outreach,” he said. “It is with this financial endowment that we are able to continue changing lives one voice at a time both within the LGBT community and throughout San Diego.”

The giant check was presented to Board President Joselyn Harris, Executive Director John Brown, Grants and Finance Manager Desmond Kelly, SDGMC Board President David Pierce and Lehman at SDHDF offices in Liberty Station, Point Loma.

Funds will go directly into producing over 40 chorus performances each year, such as the upcoming tribute to Michael Jackson in “Thriller.” 

The SDGMC will also take to the field and sing the National Anthem, Saturday, May 21, for The Padres at Petco Park, followed by a 10-show engagement of Billy Elliot with the California Youth Conservatory Theatre opening May, 28, at the Lyceum Theatre.

Everyone at Hale Media congratulates the SDGMC and wishes them the best of luck on on their continued success.
