Family comedy night to benefit Carson Tahoe Health Auxiliary

A family evening of comedy, featuring the Sacramento franchise ComedySportz, is planned at 4 p.m. April 14 at the Gold Dust West as one of the Carson Tahoe Health Auxiliary’s major fundraisers.

The comedy group, whose format is the basis of the Drew Carey television show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, will engage the audience in an interactive comedy presentation, following a buffet dinner and dessert.

The event hopes to deliver an evening of spontaneous, witty, funny, and family-friendly comedy while ensuring the nonprofit can continue its mission of supporting the hospital and making the patient experience more positive.

Since the early 1950s, the group of volunteers has worked to raise funds to purchase equipment for patient care, including sturdier wheelchairs, an AccuVein infrared vein finder machine to assist in finding a vein for easier blood draw, televisions in the post-operating rooms, chemotherapy pumps, and a bladder scanner. It also provides continuing education scholarships for the nursing staff and for nursing students at Western Nevada College.

For tickets, go to the Carson Tahoe hospital lobby gift shop, or call 775-445-5142, or buy them online at https://CarsonTahoeComedy.eventbrite.com.
