Kareem Abdul-Jabbar cancels Yakima Town Hall events on September 14 and 15
YAKIMA, WA, September 7, 2021 – Yakima Town Hall regrets to announce that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has cancelled, and will not appear at, the scheduled events on September 14 and 15, 2021 due to a personal and unforeseen conflict.
Yakima Town Hall will schedule a replacement speaking event during the first half of 2022. More details will follow as information becomes available.
“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our valued sponsors, ticketholders, and supporters,” said Robin Salts-Beckett, President of Yakima Town Hall. “We look forward to our next event and continuing to bring the highest caliber of speakers to Yakima.”
ABOUT YAKIMA TOWN HALL
In 1971, a visionary group of energetic, curious Yakima Valley women embarked on a mission to enrich our community by bringing nationally and internationally-recognized speakers from the literary, political, artistic, and business worlds to Yakima's historic "jewel box," the Capitol Theatre. Today, the 13-member, all-female board furthers that legacy. Town Hall board members work throughout the year, volunteering their time and talents to investigate, procure funding for, and contract each season's speakers. In addition, this group works together to master the more technical aspects of event planning: logistics, hospitality, marketing, publishing, accounting, data base, development, and community outreach. Yakima Town Hall is now celebrating its 48th season of "Give us an hour ... we'll bring you the world."
