Fundraising events are important. Now that we’ve said that, let’s all agree that many are boring and stuffy. That’s why the Stand Up for Hope fundraiser to benefit the Liz Logelin Foundation, an organization that provides emotional and financial support to widows and widowers with young families, is unique. The event is stacked with some of the best local comedians, including Tommy Thompson, Brandi Brown, and Jon Santos, plus headliner Dan Mintz, the voice of Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers. The night will be hosted by Breaking the News co-anchor and skinny jeans enthusiast Jana Shortal (no word on what she’ll be wearing just yet), and there will be appetizers, drinks, and raffle prizes. Tickets for this event are a little pricey, but all proceeds benefit the foundation, making this a much better way to spend money than what you might otherwise be doing on a Saturday night.
