Conquer Chiari Comedy Benefit Show

Sun, 04/14/2013 - 5:00pm - 11:00pm

Hello Everyone! 
As many of you may know, my daughter had surgery in 2009 for a neurological disorder called Chiari Malformation.
It's a disorder where the brain descends down on to the spinal cord, causing symptoms such as headaches, body pain, and often Doctors misdiagnose it a MS or other neurological disorders. 
This Sunday evening (4/14) at Side Splitters Comedy Club, I am presenting a comedy show, rated PG, to raise money for Chiari Malformation research.  I will be hosting the show along with some local radio friends and three of Knoxville's funniest Comedians, Sandy Goddard, Kristine Kinsey, and Josh Phillips. 
There is a silent auction that begins at 5:00 p.m. and the Comedy show begins at 7:00 p.m..  It's a Beach Party theme, so wear your favortie tropical attire. (hawaiian shirts, sun dresses, etc.)
I have tickets for sale for only $10.00 each.  If you cannot attend, donations are also being accepted. 
I hope to see you at the show!
Thank you!
