The Chicago Wolves are proud to host their first Pride Night at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Allstate Arena. This night celebrates the Chicago area’s LGBTQ+ community while the Wolves take on the Rockford IceHogs.
October marks National Coming Out Month and, to support the LGBTQ+ community, $5 from each ticket purchased specifically for Pride Night will go to Center on Halsted in Chicago — the Midwest’s largest LGBTQ+ community center that helps more than 1,000 people each day.
Molly Pinta, a 13-year-old from Buffalo Grove, will be recognized before the game as a Hometown Hero. Together with her parents, Molly founded the Pinta Pride Project that created Buffalo Grove’s inaugural pride parade and brought together more than 80 groups and 1,800 marchers on June 2. Molly also served as the youngest Grand Marshal in Chicago Pride Parade history on June 30.
Tickets for the Wolves’ Pride Night start at just $20 and a commemorative T-shirt comes with select purchases.
