    San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus’ ‘Dream Fund’ Honoring Dr. Tim Seelig

    By Dr. Tim Seelig–

    As my 70th Birthday approached in January 2021, I decided to invite my family and friends to donate to a “dream” fund to allow me to do some amazing things that were not in our normal budget. Oh boy, did you turn out in force! Over the next 18 months, I have been able to use that fund for some incredible initiatives such as the extraordinary video about the creation of the Artists Portal at the National AIDS Memorial Grove at Golden Gate Park. I helped us hire dancers, fancy costumes, and even have a memorial service for eight of our singers who passed away during the pandemic and were not able to have services.

    All of it was wonderful. You’ll get to see some of it on July 13 when I pass the baton to Jake (Stensberg). As I retire, I would love nothing more than to leave such a fund for him to use as he sees fit. It has most definitely allowed me to stretch and, yes, dream.

    What do you give someone who is retiring? Geritol is tacky. A recliner is too expensive. The “dream fund” is the perfect solution. And, with a donation of any size, you have the opportunity to leave me a message for me to read in my rocking chair come August.

    Thank you for helping me leave a wonderful kick-off gift for Jake.

    Love, Tim
