HELP PROMOTE COMEDY NIGHT

On Facebook we have a Reading to Kids 2013 Comedy Night and Silent Auction w/ Doug Benson event, and it would really help if you replied to it that you are going.

(You have bought your tickets, right?)

When you reply to our Facebook event, please also use the "Invite Friends" button in the upper right, or click on the gear icon and choose "Share Event", and help us publicize this fun and important and fundraiser.

If you can't join us for Comedy Night, please still share the above event with your Facebook friends and encourage them to go and tell you all about it. Every ticket you help us sell furthers our cause!

Please also click the image below for a poster in .PDF format, and forward it to anyone you know who may be interested in going to our Comedy Night.

Please also print out the poster and post it wherever many people are likely to see it, perhaps with a note that you are going and inviting others to join you. Our Comedy Night makes a great night out with friends and co-workers!
