The Raise the Woof comedy tour of North America will be stopping in Moose Jaw on Oct. 11 to raise money for the Moose Jaw Humane Society. The show will feature stand-up comedians, some who have performed at HBO and Comedy Central events.
Held at the Heritage Inn, the festivities will commence at 6 p.m. with a cash bar, refreshments, 50/50 draw and a silent auction. The entertainment will start at 7 p.m.
Comedian and producer James Uloth created the comedy tour to raise money for animal rescue groups and shelters, raising over $300,000 for various charities so far.
“Every dollar counts here. We do have to rely on fundraisers and donations for about 80 per cent of our operating budget,” said Karla Pratt, fundraising and promotions co-ordinator for the Moose Jaw Humane Society.
She said they are hoping this new event will attract a broader demographic, “perhaps not just the pet lovers. This is a comedy night and a lot of people like comedy,” she said. “So it’s a different opportunity for us for sure.”
