Comedy the ticket for South Okanagan fundraiser

Good things come in bundles, which is why a fundraiser evening for the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan | Similkameen is looking like a really big deal.

The October 14 event features a buffet meal, a live and silent auction and comedy entertainment.

The Community Foundation is bringing in three world-class comedians featured at Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, Comedy Central and have opened for comedians such as Dennis Miller, Brent Butt, Joan Rivers, Martin Short, Zach Galifianakis and Craig Ferguson.

This year’s comedians are Herb Dixon, John Buehler and Julie Kim.

“Supporting the CFSOS means more than supporting one charity because the Foundation provides grants to other charities throughout the region,” said Aaron McRann, Executive Director of the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan | Similkameen. “Last year CFSOS granted out more than $400,000 to charities located in every community in our region.”

“The Community Foundation is unique because we invest the money that is donated to us.  We grant investment income to local charities all while protecting the original donation so that it can provide a lasting legacy gift to the community.”

Tickets to this event are $65 and include a Greek all-you-can-eat buffet, door prizes and a full night of entertainment.

The event is Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Barking Parrot in Penticton. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., dinner is served at 6:00 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available at the Penticton Lakeside Resort or the Foundation office at 390 Main St.

One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the night will support the work of CFSOS.
