Elixir: The Cure for the Common Gala
|Located in a historic 1928 Beaux-Arts building, the newest Wells Fargo History Museum connects the California gold rush with the Philadelphia Mint, tying together the history of Wells Fargo and the rich heritage of the eastern United States.|
We are thrilled to welcome special guest performer Lea DeLaria! The distinguished jazz musician, Broadway Diva, and standup comic, current featured in the Netflx original series Orange is the New Black.
We are also delighted to have Jim Donovan - CBS 3 Eyewitness News 3-On Your Side Consumer Reporter, returning at our Elixir Master of Ceremonies!
Our VIP reception will feature author, guitarist, drummer, and singer/ songwriter Kevin Burkett. Kevin has been performing since 1994, and has played in and conducted orchestras for numerous theatrical productions. Originally from Indiana, he has lived in Philadelphia since 1997 and is a supporter of the Human Rights Campaign and equal rights efforts.
In keeping with our theme of “OUT is the New IN” we are honoring four distinguished individuals who have made an impact through their commitment to being open about who they are. Their achievements across a range of professions have helped to reduce stigma and break down barriers for others in the LGBT communities.
