BENEFITING: Pacer Center, Inc.
Good day educated citizen:
As I'm sure you are aware, bullying is a huge issue among teens, and it is an issue that, unfortunately, is showing no signs of slowing down, especially in our schools. For this reason, I have decided to put together a "Comedy For Care" night in my local community at a great venue in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
This event will raise awareness and feature a variety of comedians who will "stand-up" against bullying while a portion of the profit from the show will go to the great organization that is PACER (http://www.pacer.org/bullying). BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE, the money that is raised from the fundraiser, but not used for the show, will also go entirely to PACER. The event will happen after all the money is raised and will most likely take place in the middle of July.
Of course, as many do, this event will require a lot support, awareness, and sadly for my wallet and unpaid internship, cash (venue, comedians, food, etc). Luckily, thanks to modern technology I have been able to push my idea one step closer to becoming a reality. I am hoping that this will encourage everyone to get involved in any way possible.
If you have any questions at all feel free to drop me a message or tweet at me @savittj
