#Give Big CHQ
JUNE 1-11

Help Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame Celebrate its 40th Anniversary!

The Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame is excited to announce that from June 1st through 11th, we will be participating in Give Big CHQ! This online event, sponsored by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, is a great way to get our community excited about giving locally, with an amazing opportunity to raise funds for the CSHOF and nearly 100 other not-for-profits who will be participating.

In 2020 the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame will be marking 40 years of operation that will culminate with our 40th annual Induction Banquet on February 15, 2021. We think it is appropriate to recognize this historic milestone. The CSHOF has designed a campaign titled "40 and Forward" in which supporters of our mission - to Honor and Preserve the Sports History of Chautauqua County - can donate $10, $20, $30 or $40 to thank the countless number of volunteers who have brought the CSHOF to this threshold over the past four decades.
