Stand Up to Stop Violence will present its 5th Annual Comedy Fundraiser at The Rialto Theatre. We have an awesome variety show, with singers, dancers and comedians performing to benefit Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse, Comedy for Charity and The January 8th Memorial Foundation. Emerge assists and provides shelter for victims of domestic violence. Comedy for Charity raises money to prevent violence and to assist victims of violence. The January 8th Memorial Foundation is a non-profit created to memorialize the tragedy of the shootings with a memorial in El Presidio Park.
Last year’s audience included many prominent members of corporate, civic, law enforcement and entertainment personalities. Our very own David Fitzsimmons will be reprising his role as our hilarious Emcee. The show will feature Headliner John Heffron, winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and Reveille Men’s Chorus, who wowed the audience last time with their rendition of Lady Gaga tunes!
