Living for Today was created in honor of the late Gilana Alpert by her brother, David Alpert, and is now in its sixth year. Gilana's Fund was established in 2007 following the loss of Alpert at the age of 26. The fund, which has raised over $30,000, "celebrates and encourages educational programming promoting acceptance and understanding of our communities, each other, and ourselves." The 2014 recipients will be announced from the stage that evening.
Tickets are priced $20, $30, $40 and $100 (VIP with premium seating and post-show reception). There is a $12 food and drink minimum; reservations are encouraged. Visit JoesPub.com.
