Emmy Award-Winner Dana Gould to Host CHRISTMAS WITH A Z!
Swing Left-Los Feliz and Stand Up 4 America announced today that comedy legend and Emmy Award-winner Dana Gould will host CHRISTMAS WITH A Z! as "Dr. Zaius." The mind-blowing evening of holiday music, comedy and cocktails will benefit Field Team 6, a national volunteer organization whose simple mission is to register Democrats in crucial battlefields across the country to take back the White House. The fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, December 11, 2019 at 8:00 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm) at The Satellite, 1717 Silverlake Blvd., in Silver Lake. Benefit tickets are available at TheSatelliteLA.com.
"We're raising money to register voters all over the country. It's obvious that what the party in power fears the most is democracy itself. They know they can't win a fair fight. So that's what we're bringing to them. Voters to the polls that represent the actual demographics of America.
And we're having a blast doing it," said Stand Up 4 America Founder, Don Foster.
Dana Gould added, "If Christmas in Los Angeles means anything, it's a seven-foot clown and a talking orangutan in an Elvis jumpsuit joining forces to get people to vote."
When asked about the importance of supporting Field Team 6 at the upcoming CHRISTMAS WITH A Z! benefit, Dr. Zaius replied, "Planet of the Apes showed us an Earth destroyed by the ignorance of mankind. Field Team 6 is working hard to keep that science fiction."

Field Team 6 is a non-profit national volunteer army with a simple mission: Register Democrats. Save the world. By targeting places that need Democrats most, the organization aims to take the White House, flip the Senate, and expand the House majority in 2020. Founded in December 2018 by Jason Berlin, Field Team 6 registers Democrats in crucial battlefields across the country.
Stand Up 4 America helps small, feisty, grassroots organizations produce entertaining and unconventional fundraising events to benefit their noble purposes. Formed this summer by founding members of TwentyWonder.org and Superball Presents, SU4A.org has produced the eclectic and funky fundraisers: "Stand Up for America!," "Unify or Die!" (at Fais Do Do), and now "Christmas with a Z!" to benefit: Swing Left, Field Team 6, the Dan McCready campaign for Congress (NC-9), and the Voter Protection Project.
Begun after the 2016 Election, Swing Left has grown into a grassroots movement of hundreds of thousands of people across the country. And in 2019, Flippable, an organization working to turn state governments blue, joined the Swing Left family. The national organization is now led by Executive Director Ethan Todras-Whitehill, Managing Director Matt Ewing, Chief Marketing Officer Michelle Finocchi, and Chief Strategy Officer Catherine Vaughan.
Swing Left is not comprised of politicians or professional organizers. Swing Left members are citizens. And like many people, have been sitting on the sidelines for too long. They didn't have all the answers, but they knew it was time to channel their anger and despair in a positive direction.
