NEWS ADVISORY: CHER CONVENTION 2000
Hundreds of Fans to Gather in "Chercago"
Cher Convention 2000 Set for July 14 & 15 in Windy City
Chicago-Fans from throughout the United States as well as international visitors will gather in Chicago on July 14 and 15 to celebrate the multi-talented Cher. The convention will feature performances, music, movies, photos and rare Cher memorabilia, as well as the opportunity to meet others who share the belief that Cher is one of the greatest modern entertainers.
This will be a gathering of fans with a difference, however. Proceeds from the convention will be used to support the Children’s Craniofacial Association (CCA). For many years, Cher has been the honorary chairperson of CCA, which provides support to children born with facial deformities. She has been more than "honorary" in her support; often visiting affected children and inviting them to her shows across the country. The convention was conceived by Cher fans as a unique way of honoring Cher by supporting a cause in which she deeply believes.
