Cris Williamson to headline Pizza Klatch Gayla/Concert/Auction in Olympia February 2

PIZZA KLATCH GAYLA/
CONCERT/ONLINE AUCTION
WASHINGTON CENTER FOR
THE PERFORMING ARTS
(OLYMPIA, WA)
February 2


Pizza Klatch is thrilled to host Cris Williamson in concert at their Pizza Klatch Gayla/Concert/Online Auction on Saturday, February 2, at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts (512 Washington St SE, Olympia 98501) to benefit their exceptional program supporting LGBTQ+ youth in Thurston County public schools.

Pizza Klatch provides 29 weekly lunchtime support groups to LGBTQ+ youth and youth allies in all 14 high schools in Thurston County and one middle school, reaching between 300 - 400 youth every week throughout the school year. The Gayla is Pizza Klatch's single largest fundraising event and provides a significant portion of our operating budget.

Joining the iconic American lesbian feminist singer and songwriter for this important Gayla fundraiser/Concert and online Auction will be the hysterical and social justice focused The Righteous Mothers, storyteller and comedian El Sanchez, 'they make magic out of any moment,' and their fabulous emcee, youth drug counselor by day and Diva by night: the fabulous Aleksa Manila.

There is also a fabulous VIP reception, chance drawings, the BEST PHOTO BOOTH ever! and cupcakes and pizza. Tickets are $25-$67 for the concert and $127 for the VIP Reception and Meet & Greet (which includes the show). Student and senior discounts are available. For more information and tickets, visit www.washingtoncenter.org/event/pk-2018/ or phone (360) 753-8586.

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
Singer, songwriter, musician, activist and recipient of Americana Music's Lifetime Achievement Award, Cris Williamson is one of the most important figures from the women's music movement that took root in the 1970s. Cris' first album, Changer and the Changed made NPR Music's Top 150 Albums Made by Women. (Cris Williamson singing Waterfall - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDPWpWY-n1g)

The Righteous Mothers are returning to the Gayla stage back by popular demand. 'I don't know of any group that can move me so quickly from gales of laughter to tears of sorrow - and joy.' - Carolyn Prouty (The Righteous Mothers - Old Fat Naked Women for Peace - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OINStsPwgQ4)

El Sanchez is Seattle Trans/Queer/Latinix Comedian who weaves together a unique mix of embarrassing personal stories, nerdy obsessions and social politics. (El Sanchez - https://youtu.be/v7iRvwbVvJk)

The word emcee doesn't do justice to the extraordinarily talented Aleksa Manila. Drug counselor by day, drag diva by night. Winner of the 2018 Humanitarian Award, Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA). Aleksa Manila is a consummate entertainer. (www.aleksamanila.com)

ABOUT THE ONLINE AUCTION
Every year, our Gayla includes an online auction where participants can bid on a large variety of donations provided by local businesses and residents. This year, we will be working with Silent Auction Pro to host our online auction. Please be sure to go to pizzaklatch.org/gayla to register for our auction. At the Gayla itself, the auction will still be done ONLINE through computers, phones and IPads. There will be volunteers at kiosks onsite to help you bid. By registering early you will not have to stand in long lines when you arrive. You also can opt for an express checkout allowing you a fast, easy exit at the end of the concert/auction.

If you can't make it to Olympia for the Gayla concert you can still participate in the online auction via pizzaklatch.org/gayla or simply make an online donation or write a check and mail it to Pizza Klatch, 1311 4th Ave E, Olympia WA 98506. (360) 339-7574.
