FOUNDERS' GALA UPDATE
April 1, 2020
After much discussion and thought, it is with heavy hearts that we have decided to cancel our 2020 Founders’ Gala. We will save the celebration of an incredible group of honorees and the exciting setlist that you chose for Spring 2021.
Each one of you matters to us so very much. You are our family - the reason we are able to do what we do to make this world a more inclusive place. Each year, we look forward to seeing your faces, seeing you connect with your friends, and introducing you to people who are doing amazing things for inclusion in their communities. We are devastated that we can't be together this year, but with the weeks, months and future so uncertain, we feel it is the right decision.
Even though there won’t be a traditional Gala as we all have come to love, we are already working on a number of new and creative ways to show you just how much all of us appreciate and cherish your commitment to the children and programs that count on our support. Stay tuned, it will be an exciting year unlike any other in our history. You all do so much for us, and we are so grateful for you. Every. Single. Day. And we know with supporters and friends like you, we will all get through this. Together.
If you have purchased ticket packages for the gala, check your email for details or contact us for more information.

YOU PICK THE SETLIST
Some of you may remember from last year's Gala that a certain songbird promised to let YOU, our supporters, choose this year's setlist.
Well, we're making good on that promise!
For this year's performance, all registered Gala attendees can submit songs they'd like Clay to perform, and then we are gonna hold a vote! That's right, YOU are going to be 100% behind this year's performance.
