(Santa Clarita, March 29, 2012) – If you are looking for something different and fun to do with your family this spring, mark your calendars for May 18. A professional troupe of clean comedians called the Standup Guys will do a clean comedy show benefit atRealLifeChurch, and the proceeds will be used to further the work of SCV Habitat for Heroes in the valley.
Habitat for Heroes is a special program of Habitat for Humanity,San Fernandoand Santa Clarita Valleys. The program is designed to help meet the affordable housing needs of Santa Clarita vets, and seeks eventually to build a self-contained neighborhood of homes for the valley’s local heroes.
The event will showcase the comedic talents of Robert G. Lee, Kenn Kington and Bob Smiley – the Standup Guys. It is being presented by Providence Health and Service, Southern California; and is co-sponsored by SoCalGas, KHTS andRealLifeChurch.
“The proceeds will be used to benefit our local veterans,” said Mike Mizrahi of SoCalGas and Jeri-Seratti Goldman, co-owner of KHTS radio, co-chairs of the comedy night. “Specifically, the funds will help to facilitate critical repairs needed at the American Legion Hall,” at24527 Spruce St., in Newhall, he added.
The American Legion Post 507, a place of community for the Santa Clarita veteran population, is over 50 years old and in dire need of repairs, Seratti-Goldman points out. As a result, the Post is having difficulty booking events, such as weddings and organizational meetings, which in the past has generated much needed funds to keep the facility updated and safe
“So, in addition to treating yourself and your family and friends to a great night of family entertainment – these guys are really funny – you can do something really worthwhile for your community,” Mizrahi said. “You can give our veterans in Santa Clarita a place to congregate, network and grow their community so that they can continue rebuilding their civilian life after serving our country.”
The Standup Guys concert is the easiest way to help our local veterans. Laugh, enjoy and serve those who have served us. The show will start at 8pm, and there will be a VIP party in the Church Coffee shop afterwards for those who purchase VIP tickets or sponsorship packages.
