The Imperial Sovereign Court of the Chinook Arch
The Imperial Sovereign Court of the Chinook Arch has a 42 year history in the Calgary area of being leaders fighting for LGBTQ+ rights when it was not easy or safe.
In addition to being ‘out there’, each year this not for profit organization has entertained us, and while doing so raised immense amounts of money the hard way – a few dollars at a time.
Money raised by these volunteers has been contributed back to various worthy and needy organizations in our community. Estimates have the amount of money raised by this groups efforts as approaching $1,000,000. In recent years it is not unusual for the ‘court’ to raise in excess of $50,000 a year.
The Chinook Fund is proud to recognize this group as being the 1st ‘group’ to receive our Hero Award!
