Las Vegas Comedians Raise Funds

Las Vegas’ comedians have helped to raise funds for a family, after their moving truck was stolen. The family is from Portland, Oregon. It was disappointing when the family’s 26 foot moving truck and its contents arrived in Las Vegas, as a majority of the family’s items has been stolen or trashed.

A Las Vegas comedian, Michael Shank saw the news story on Channel 13, and decided to organize a stand up comedy show to fundraise for the family. Shank worked with TickleMe Entertainment to sponsor the event, which happened last Friday, on the 24th at the Las Vegas Grille.

Michael Shank expressed his sympathy, saying “The family has two kids and all of their stuff was stolen. I have two kids of my own and I can sympathize with what they are going through right now.”

The show being organized by Shank, and being sponsored by TickleMe Entertainment will raise funds with all proceeds going to the family.

TickleMe Entertainment Events Director, Phil Peredo said “We want to show the Lovelady family that Las Vegas does welcome them with open arms, and if we can put a smile on their face after this terrible incident and raise some funds while we’re at it, we know we’re doing what we’re meant to do as comedians.”
