“My Favorite One” from the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus December 2015 JINGLE concert.
This holiday season will be even brighter for many San Diego kids and families thanks to the San Diego Padres’ sponsorship of the popular holiday show Jingle to be presented by the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus at the Balboa Theatre on Dec. 10 and 11, 2016.
The partnership includes significant community outreach targeting San Diego County LGBT youth, local students, military, first responders and their families and organizations supporting and providing services to the LGBT community.
“Jingle is a festive and entertaining holiday tradition in our community,” said Padres President and CEO Mike Dee. “The Padres are proud to support the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus and to provide the opportunity for many San Diegans to experience this special show for the first time.”
“We are very proud to partner with the San Diego Padres,” said Bob Lehman, Executive –
Director. “Not only are they supporting the LGBT performing arts, but with their help, many LGBT youth and families in difficult circumstances will get to come out and join us for a really fun and festive holiday show.”
