Battle for the Tiara began as a small, annual party and AIDS fundraising event filled with love and heart in Alexis Pittman’s living room. Each year it has grown in size and renown. No longer able to squeeze into a tiny living room, the event attracts 2,000 people and takes place each fall at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.The event is helmed by an amazing group of dedicated and creative people including Jeffrey Drew, Patrick Rush, Jimmy Cuomo, Joey Alfano, John Paschal, Todd Gadjusek, and Greg Butler. For more than ten years, Kathy Griffin has generously opened the show AND been a major donor. She leads the judges’ panel and ensures that the evening is a comedic success.
