SAN DIEGO–The San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus is singing a happy song thanks to a $10,000 matching grant from the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation.
“We are so incredibly grateful to the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation for helping support our musical mission of outreach,” said SDGMC Executive Director Bob Lehman. “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 check presentation took place this week at the SDHDF Liberty Station offices within The San Diego Foundation. On hand from SDHDF were Board President Joselyn Harris, Executive Director John Brown and Grants and Finance Manager Desmond Kelly; and from SDGMC were Board President David Pierce and Lehman.
Proceeds from this grant will help the chorus continue its more than 40 community outreach performances each year throughout San Diego. Most notably, SDGMC will sing the National Anthem on May 21 for the San Diego 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.
