So the Portland Gay Men's Chorus is about to embark on one of its most ambitious seasons ever!!! It is a year that will culminate with the chorus becoming the very first gay chorus to tour and perform in the Peoples Republic of China when our four city tour to Beijing, Xi'an, Shanghai and Suzhou begins next August 30, 2018. For 37 years now the chorus has been changing hearts and minds through music. We have taken that message to communities across the Pacific Northwest - this year we take our message of acceptance and inclusion to China. The power of song should never be underestimated.
I am asking my family, friends and colleagues to help the chorus in reaching its overall fundraising goal of raising $150,000 and my personal goal of $10,000 to support this ambitious undertaking. When we began the discussion about our tour of china I made a commitment to chorus members that we would help raise critical scholarship support to ensure that those chorus members with limited financial means could still participate in the tour. I have already taken care of my tour but I am fully committed to making sure every member that wants to go can. So won't you help me out - whether you give $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or any other amount - it will be appreciated and welcomed. Your support will make a difference.
