May 24, 2011 - PRLog -- On Tuesday, June 14th, 2011, the Musicquarium Lounge at Seattle’s Triple Door Theater will host “Songs for June,” a benefit for Gilda’s Club Seattle. Sanjaya Malakar, a finalist on season six of American Idol, is headlining the event. Also performing are Bellingham-based artist Kristin Allen-Zito and old-time folk trio RedDog.

Gilda's Club Seattle is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, established in 2001 in honor of the late comedienne Gilda Radner.

In the ten years since opening, they have served people on more than 130,000 occasions. For more information visit

Sanjaya Malakar is eager to donate his time to the event. "I've had a lot of experience with people with cancer, really close people that have died," Malakar explained, "So it's close to my heart to be able to do something like this."

The "Songs for June" fundraising event will honor the memory of June Draeger-Otis, who was a member of Gilda's Club Seattle. A silent auction will accompany the performances, which run from 9-11 PM. All proceeds from the event will benefit Gilda's Club Seattle.

Reserved space for the June 14th "Songs for June" benefit is limited. Admittance to the event and participation in the silent auction can be ensured by registering with a $25 donation to Gilda’s Club Seattle at
