Comedy with Benefits - fundraiser for Paul Bellini

Date: Sunday November 10th 2019
Time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm

$15 includes HST

Comedy with Benefits is presenting a fun fundraiser show this Sunday to benefit beloved local comedian & writer Paul Bellini (best known for his work with Kids in the Hall) via the "Touch Paul Bellini" initiative

All proceeds from this event will be donated to Paul as he rests and recovers from the complications surrounding his recent extended hospital stay

From the organizers of Paul's fundraiser on GoFundMe
"On Friday Oct 25th our good friend Paul Bellini went into the hospital for hernia surgery, which was expected to be routine. Sadly, there were complications and Paul experienced profound reactions post operation. He has been in the hospital, in critical condition and on life-support, ever since.

While the prognosis for recovery is currently positive Paul has been left incapacitated and unable to work. Doctors tells us Paul will probably not be able to return to his various jobs for a minimum of three months and, as many of you know, being ill and convalescing are prohibitively expensive."
