BBJ has been a proud supporter of the LGBT community for years. We have been supplying our linens and table designs to events and organizations that are geared to helping the development of the LGBT community. Bill Pry, one of our owners, has devoted a lot of time and effort into making sure these organizations are getting the utensils they need to make their fundraising events and galas look fabulous. In fact on June 6, 2012, BBJ was recognized by BMO Harris Bank as the “Business of the Year 2012” for our work with the LGBT community.
For Bill, he wants to educate the young LGBT that they are not alone in this world. That there are communities for those who feel rejected. That many have fought so gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender people can experience the freedoms they do today that they did not have decades ago. By contributing to organizations such as Lambda Legal, Dance for Life, Center on Halsted, and Chicago House, BBJ believes that tomorrow will be better than today.
