On 12/8 and 12/9, the 20th annual Gypsy of the Year competition was held. This was the second fund raising event of the Broadway year. Spamalot brought in lots of support money for 'Broadway Cares' during the 'Easter Bonnet' competition last spring. Once again, Clay lent his support by offering items to the on-line auction. One lucky fan must be really hungry! $15,600 for dinner!!! Of course you get Clay and some other cast members as fellow guests, so it's a bargain at any price!  Mar 23, 2009, 1:49 PM Kathy Kann
