Comedy fundraiser for CURE (DC area)


One of the things I have been trying to get started this year is a fundraising business that will use comedy to raise money for causes I care about. I have recently been in touch with some people who work with CURE and hope to put an event together in Washington, DC early next year. I thought this might interest some people here -- anyone in the DC area?

Anyway, more details will be made available as they are worked out.

Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, whatever would be appreciated.

Sounds like a great idea. I'm not in the DC area, but I have family down there, so I can steer them to the show....

Nice. CURE does good work - definitely a group worth working with on a fundraiser. CWE has thousands of members and 10-100 times more lurkers. Rest assured that there are DC area residents who will see the note here (I'll amend the thread title to grab their attention).
New to CWE? I suggest reading the proactive prescription and epilepsy 101 threads. Also check out this chart of alternative epilepsy treatments and this page on EEG Neurofeedback. More great stuff can be found in the list of the best forum threads.

Would you like to help support this forum?

My professional experience is in communications and event planning. Nearly three years ago I started doing stand-up comedy so I thought it would be a good fit to organize fundraisers for causes I care about. I am working on the program and venue now. I really want to help raise awareness and money.
