Sin City Classic, Las Vegas Multi-sport

Coming up in 2012, January 12-15th... Las Vegas will play host to over 3,000 LGBT athletes in a multisport tournament that includes Softball, Basketball, Tennis, Wrestling and Bodybuilding competitions. For some sports like Wrestling and Body Building, this is a rare opportunity to compete more frequently with other LGBTQ Athletes from North America.

Non-Competing Supports can spectate and cheer on their favorite athletes from the Chicagoland area or participate in other components of this multi-sport event at the Planet Hollywood host hotel (special discounted group rate on the event site) and at the official nightly host venues around Las Vegas. This is also a good way to venture to warmer climates after the holidays during the blistering cold months of January.

The Tournament donates a portion of the proceeds to the Las Vegas LGBT Center and will have additional opportunities throughout the weekend to give to them.
