Comedy Tour helps fill food bank shelves

 

Dear editor,

The Comox Valley was treated to an evening of comedy recently, when the Investors Group Comedy Tour visited the Sid Williams Theatre.

Three contemporary comedians entertained the audience with their wit and humour.

But the biggest smiles were from the volunteers for the Comox Valley Food Bank who attended and collected food and money donations at this annual fundraiser.

Thank you to the Investors Group of financial advisers across Canada who support all Food Banks. Created in 2003 The Comedy Tour has raised over $1.2 million in B.C./Alberta alone. There was a cheque presentation of $1,000 each given to the Comox Valley Food Bank and The Campbell River Food Bank by the local Investors Group.

Thank you to all the patrons who attended, we collected over $700 and  400 kilograms of food which will be used in our ongoing program to assist people in need in the Comox Valley.

Jeff Hampton,

president,

Comox Valley Food Bank
