Vancouver TheatreSports League presents the 5th annual Grapes of Laugh fundraiser tomorrow night. The event will involve tastings of some of New Zealand’s finest wines, silent auctions, live auctions, and improv performances by the Vancouver TheatreSports players.
The fundraising aspect supports community and youth programs year-round. From the organizers:
“Each year, we send performers to Childrenâ€™s Hospital to provide comedy improv shows to those kids and their families who do not have the luxury of seeing our work at our theatre. VTSL Community Outreach also includes our Youth Programs (Teen Improv Camps and providing complimentary tickets to organizations such as Big Sisters, Big Brothers, Kids Upfront, and other Kids-At-Risk programs), as well as performing for over 30,000 school children across British Columbia each year.”
Tickets are still available for $65 and the event will be hosted by CBC’s Fred Lee.
I have always wanted to catch a TheatreSports event so I’m very pleased to partner with them to give away five pairs of tickets to an upcoming performance night. The group has nightly themes such as “rookie night”, “improv musical”, and “late night mixer”. You can view a full monthly schedule of VTSL events online.
Laughter has such power to connect, cross language barriers, and even to heal. To enter to win one of these pairs of tickets to Vancouver TheatreSports, please leave a comment on this post with your best joke (try to keep it as clean as possible, if you can). It can be an ‘oldie but a goodie’, knock-knock style, from a movie, or something your 3-year old invented.
I will draw five winners (who will each get a pair of tickets) on Wednesday November 10th at 12:00pm. Follow @VanTheatreSports on Twitter for their latest news and updates.
Update The five pass winners are: Marina, Chris, Greg, Stephen and Liz. Have a fantastic laugh-filled time at Vancouver Theatre Sports!
