The Attic Youth Center (AYC), Philly’s only organization that exclusively serves the city’s LGBTQ youth, is turning the big 2-0 this year, and its celebrating with a glittering fundraiser gala. Themed “Unlocking the Future,” the evening will include dinner, cocktails, and a big-name headliner: Alex Newell, who you may recognize as trans diva Unique on Glee. Along with singing a few songs, Newell will be presented with AYC’s OK2BU Role Model Award.
The evening is sure to be one to remember, and we’d like to give two of our readers a chance to check it out. We have a pair of tickets available, valued at $175 each.
Since it's such a big prize, I want to make this a little trickier. To win, be the SECOND person to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the correct answer to this question:

b. Pippin in Pippin
c. Effie in Dreamgirls
