Chicago’s Cyon Flare Benefit Monday April 23

Children RISE as we band together to lend a hand to one of our own!
After a recent home break-in, our Cyon Flare is in need of things that need to replaced.
We invite you to join us in our effort to help replace the essential tools which he needs to be functional again in order to work at home and continue his valued community outreach.

Sidetrack, April 23, 6-8pm.

Suggested donation of $10 gets 1 drink ticket and door prize entry.
Uber-fabulous Bradley Thomas will be the emcee and you can expect
performances by RaShaan Houston and others to be announced and some

Also, DJ FLX will be spinning beats to keep you movin’ and groovin’.

All of us who know him, recognize one of his many passions is to use
his gifts as a performer-ambassador to raise $$$ and consciousness to
fight the fear and stigma of HIV/AIDS . His amazing energy and spirit
has benefitted almost every social service agency/organization/parade/streetfest
(EQ IL-TPAN-Vital Bridges-Mr. Friendly-AIDS Foundation of
Chicago-United in HIV-just to name a few) in our city. He is currently
working with the Center On Halsted as part of the OVAH (Our Voices
Advocating Health) program.

Robert Cyon Flare evolved through
the love of costumes and influential art from old style movies about Las
Vegas showgirls, Josephine Baker & celebrities like Liberace,
Sylvester, Boy George and RuPaul. He uses his talents to reach people
all over the word and remind them that music(particularly house) is a
healing balm that can lift the spirit. Let’s help him lift his!!!

Trust that you can make a difference no matter who you are or where you
go! So go to Sidetrack on 4/23…hope to see you there and spread the
word and share the love!!
