One of the benefits of performing comedy is the opportunity to work with charities and fundraisers for worthy causes. Some comedians even take matters into their own hands and create something meaningful.
22. The average number of veterans and service members who take their lives each day.
This devastating statistic motivated Charlotte comedian and Marine Corps veteran, Crystalle Ramey, to do something about it. A local favorite, she has seen first hand the healing affects of laughter and is using it to help others. Wednesday, April 18th, Ramey is producing the benefit show Comedy for a Cause, bringing together fellow comedians, who are also veterans, to raise funds, and bring awareness to Stop Soldier Suicide, a veteran-founded-and-led nonprofit headquartered in Raleigh.
Other comedians scheduled to perform:
· Jamie Ward (U.S. Army) from Atlanta, GA
· Zo Myers (U.S. Army) from Greensboro, NC
· Anthony Crawford (U.S. Air Force) from Denver, CO
Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Stop Soldier Suicide. Those who can’t attend but want to show their support can purchase tickets that will be donated to a service member or veteran. Donors will receive a specially designated dog tag as a token of appreciation for their support. Tickets are $25 for Golden Circle seats and $20 general admission.
