Peggy Platt Performs at Non-Profit Comedy to Benefit Aradia Women’s Health Center

Seattle, WA, July 14, 2006— On Tuesday, August 1st , The Comedy Underground will be teaming up with Seattle’s reigning “Diva of Comedy” Peggy Platt for a Non-Profit Comedy Event, an evening of unrestrained hilarity to benefit Aradia Women’s Health Center. The event will begin at 8:30 p.m with doors opening at 7:30p.m. The Comedy Underground is located at 222 S Main St (under Swannie’s Sports Bar in Pioneer Square). There will be a $10 cover charge with 50% of the proceeds donated to Aradia. Tickets will be available at the door.

Peggy Platt’s irreverent comedy has been revered in Seattle’s feminist and progressive circles for more than 20 years. She was the winner of the 1985 Seattle International Comedy Competition. Peggy is also behind many of Seattle’s comedy favorites, such as “Dos Fallopia” and “Ham for the Holidays”.

Aradia Women’s Health Center continues to provide non-judgmental healthcare to women, and to defend reproductive rights and freedoms. Aradia’s recent advocacy efforts have been instrumental in opposing the conscience clause favored by the Washington State Board of Pharmacy that would allow pharmacists to refuse to fill emergency contraception prescriptions due to moral objections. In addition, Aradia has successfully implemented a Pledge-a-Picketer fundraising campaign, and actively advocated for the passage of HB2481, a bill that protects abortion providers from losing their insurance as a result of arson or bombings. In 2006, Aradia launched our new grant-funded teen health education program, CONNECT, designed to reduce sexually transmitted infections and unplanned pregnancies among teens in our city.
