Pizza Klatch presents 'A Slice of the Good Life' with Rufus Wainwright

A benefit concert and auction for Pizza Klatch in support of LGBTQ+ youth

Pizza Klatch presents their annual fundraising Gayla, 'A Slice of the Good Life,' a benefit concert and auction for Pizza Klatch in support of LGBTQ+ youth, on Saturday, February 4, at the Washington Center for Performing Arts (512 Washington St SE) in Olympia, WA. This year's musical guest is renowned pianist, singer/ songwriter, Rufus Wainwright. (www.rufuswainwright.com; www.facebook.com/rufuswainwrightofficial; www.twitter.com/rufuswainwright)

Praised by the New York Times for his 'genuine originality,' Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. The New York-born, Montreal-raised singer-songwriter has released seven studio albums, three DVDs, and three live albums, including the fantastic Grammy-nominated Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall, which captured his celebrated Judy Garland tribute performance at the London Palladium in 2007, and the album Release The Stars which went Gold in Canada and the U.K.

Pizza Klatch is a life-saving support group for LGBTQ+ youth and their allies in local high schools. These support groups have a proven record that prevents teen suicide, reduces bullying, and decreases dropout rates. Each group is run by two trained adult co-facilitators, who are members of the LGBTQ+ community or allies. Pizza Klatch facilitators work hard to ensure this is a RESPECTFUL, INCLUSIVE and SAFER SPACE for all who attend.

'Pizza Klatch is very accepting. They love you for who you are, and it's a safe, happy place to be,' said one student in the program. Student survey responses show that these support groups directly improve our LGBTQ+ youth's well-being, empowering the youth to stand up against injustice while strengthening a sense of community in the schools, thus enhancing their desire to stay and graduate. One youth said, 'Pizza Klatch is very accepting. They love you for who you are, and it's a safe, happy place to be.

The 'A Slice of the Good Life' Gayla is Pizza Klatch's single largest fundraising event and provides a significant portion of our operating budget. This is a fun and jubilant event as we celebrate the success of our students who benefit from our support groups. Get ready for fun, laughter and tears as we present a short program by Pizza Klatch youth, an amazing photo booth and, of course, pizza.

Doors open at 6pm for the auction and schmoozing. The concert begins at 7:30pm. VIP reception begins at 5:30pm in the Black Box and includes the best seats in the house. Tickets range from $25-$85; VIP tickets $130. Everyone is welcome. Tickets are now on sale through the Washington Center at www.washingtoncenter.org or call 360-753-8586.

Pizza Klatch Silent Online Auction

In addition, we will also have an online auction. This year, we will be working with Silent Auction Pro to host our online auction.

At the Gayla itself, the silent auction will still be done ONLINE through your computers, phones and IPads. There will be volunteers at kiosks onsite to help you bid if you need it. By registering early you will not have to stand in long lines when you arrive. You also can opt for an express checkout, which will allow you a fast, easy exit at the end of the concert/auction.
