The date is set for the Friendly City’s second iteration of Raise the Woof, a comedy benefit in support of the Moose Jaw Humane Society (MJHS).
“Raise the Woof is a comedy tour. It was organized originally by a man from Calgary who started this organization up to travel North America with different comics just raising money for animal shelters and rescue organizations,” said Karla Pratt, the fundraising and promotions co-ordinator for the MJHS.
The show is the second to come to Moose Jaw after meeting “modest success” in the city last October, Pratt said.
“It was a fun night,” she noted. “Last year, we had three comics ... Everybody who attended was very pleased they had come. ... A lot of people said they’d be back next year.”
“We’re excited to improve upon our success from last year,” Pratt added.
This time around, the show will be headlined by award-winning comic Cory Mack, who has performed on tours with Yuk Yuks and on CBC Radio.
The event is scheduled for April 5 and will be held at the Wildlife Federation Hall. Tickets are $30 each, or can be purchased in groups of eight for $200.
Attendees can participate in a 50/50 draw as well as silent auctions, and there will be a cash bar and snacks available.
