Comedy For Kids’ Sake
November 15, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$50.00
We’re rolling out the red carpet, and you are invited! Join Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon for a fabulous night of comedy, libations, and defending potential. Our 22nd annual Comedy For Kids’ Sake is returning to the Tower Theatre November 15th, 2019, and promises to be the best yet, hosted by the effervescent Tracee Tuesday, voted best local radio personality in 2018, and featuring two side-splitting comedians.
The evening includes a huge silent auction and an exciting live auction that gets the crowd competing over one-of-a-kind items. Favorites are the “showstopper:” thousands of dollars in beer, wine, and spirits, two tickets to anywhere Alaska Air flies, and the “food truck frenzy:” with culinary experiences all around Central Oregon. Getaways, like a large vacation rental on the Oregon Coast or a stay in a private cabin located on a secluded ¾-mile stretch of the best fly fishing water on the Lower Deschutes will also create a stir.
All proceeds from Bend’s premier red carpet event, goes towards matching Central Oregon youth with caring adult mentors, also known as, DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL. Children benefit from a caring adult inspiring their potential. Studies show youth with mentors do better in school and reach higher levels of education than those without, and there are hundreds of kids from Madras to La Pine who need mentors. Join us for a spectacular event, become a Defender of Potential, and change a life for the better, forever.
