The YWCA of Spokane announced this morning that Queen Latifah’s appearance tonight at the INB Performing Arts Center has been canceled. The announcement states that Queen Latifah is dealing with a family medical emergency.
The event, “A Conversation with the Queen: A Night of Triumph with Queen Latifah,” was a fundraiser for programs of the YWCA of Spokane that support women in crisis and women working toward becoming self-sufficient. According to the YWCA’s website, ” The purpose of tonight’s event was two-fold: we wanted to share Queen Latifah’s inspiring message with our YWCA clients and the city of Spokane, but we also hoped to raise critical funds for YWCA programming.”
Those who purchased tickets online or over the phone will get an automatic refund with the original card used for the purchase, and if tickets were purchased at an outlet or at the box office, they will be refunded through the box office at 720 W. Mallon.
