The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition (GPAC)’s mission is
to ensure that schools, communities, and workplaces are safe for
everyone to learn, live together, and succeed - whether or not they
meet expectations for masculinity and femininity. As a human rights
organization, GPAC also promotes an understanding of the connection
between discrimination based on gender stereotypes and sex, sexual
orientation, age, race, and class.
On October 6, the GPAC is having their 3rd Annual Chicago Celebrity
Cook-Off on October 6, 2007, which is called, “Ladies of The
L Word” Cook-Off. For a price of $500 you can get a VIP Cook-Off
and After-Party ticket that include: spending an evening with the
“Ladies of the L word” while they are cooking; meeting
celebrity chefs and sampling their cook-off dishes; access to heavy
Hors d'oeuvres, Cocktails and Espresso Bar; silent Auction and raffle
including exclusive getaways to Aspen and the Caribbean; and premium

appearances by the “Ladies of the L word”; 1 complimentary
Grey Goose cocktail; live comedy and live music; silent Auction
and raffle including exclusive getaways to Aspen and the Caribbean.
