Registration has closed for this event. Contact email@example.com with any questions.
This year will be the *LAST year of the Founders’ Gala (so we can make room for something even more exciting next year!) and we want YOU to help us celebrate the END OF AN ERA. Not only will our co-founder Clay Aiken be singing the setlist that YOU voted for in 2020, but we want YOU to join us on stage!
Since our last event (Karaoke for Inclusion) was so much fun, we’ve decided to combine a few of those elements with the gala that we’ve all come to love, and create one epic experience to give the Founders’ Gala the proper send-off it deserves! This amazing night will include a singing competition with YOU as the participants and a performance by Clay, Ben, and the amazingly talented band.
Come one, come all and join us for an evening you won’t soon forget.
*This may be the end of the Founders' Gala, but not the end of our annual gathering! Gala attendees will also get a sneak peek of next year's event, so join us to be the first to know!
