Dame Grant is a Chicago stand-up comedian and a volunteer Coach for the CSH Speak Up program in Illinois.
Dame has been a great coach and mentor for two of our participants in the program, and he is now going above and beyond his initial calling and asking others to embrace and support our Illinois Speak Up effort.
The Dame Grant Birthday Bash, held at Zanies Chicago on Tuesday, November 26 at 8:00 pm, will also be a fundraising opportunity for Speak Up in Illinois. Dame has decided to donate all of his ticket-sale proceeds to Speak Up Illinois through our Fund to Honor our former colleague and Speak Up champion, Sean Hellems.
Please purchase a ticket, enjoy Dame’s great comedy, and help us continue to elevate and empower the lives of our Speak Up family, courageous people with lived experience in homelessness and then supportive housing who are changing hearts and policies by sharing their personal stories of triumph over tragedy.
Dame is celebrating his Birthday with us and for us, and we welcome you to join in his Bash and raise your voices with us for Speak Up as we continue to honor our participants in the program and the memory of Sean Hellems.
