AIDS Memorial Quilt

This past World AIDS Day, December 5, 2016, five Chicago area theatres raised $1,864 for Season of Concern! Generous audiences for Remy Bumppo’s PYGMALION, Pride Films & Plays’ HIS & HIS, A CABARET, Porchlight Music Theatre’s END OF THE RAINBOW and IN THE HEIGHTS, Pegasus Theatre’s RUTHERFORD’S TRAVELS and Windy City Playhouse’s APARTMENT 3A all joined forces to give to those in need! In addition, several theatres started their holiday season audience solicitations on or soon after December 1st using the Season of Carols Volume 4 CDs as donation incentives. In 2016 SoC gave out $80,000 to 16 different Chicago area AIDS agencies that deal with prevention and testing of this still ongoing medical crisis.

THE AIDS MEMORIAL QUILT - Season of Concern is asking any theaters to contact us if interested in hanging a panel or two from the Names Project: The AIDS Memorial Quilt at their theater during the months of February and March 2017. These 12 X 12 panels are ones made in memory of Chicago area theatre professionals who we lost to AIDS. Chicago area theatres, please join us in February and March as we unite in remembrance of those we lost as we display their beautiful quilt panels at Chicago’s many theater locations. While Season of Concern always welcomes donations to continue its ongoing mission of support to those in need, this Panel Hanging Project’s intention is not to raise funds, but to increase awareness and remembrance for those we lost along the way.

The Season of Carols Volume 4 CDs are still available at the Season of Carols' store, cdBaby and on iTunes. Purchase price of these CDs will go directly to Season of Concern.
