Antigo Presented the 3rd Annual Standup Comedy Fundraiser Show, Chuckles for Charity 3
FOR ANTIGO TIMES
On Saturday February 16th, North Star Lanes in Antigo Presented the 3rd annual standup comedy fundraiser show, Chuckles for Charity 3. The ticket proceeds, tshirt sales, donations and 50/50 done at the show were to benefit two charities: the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern Wisconsin and the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer). Both charities were chosen to honor Brady’s niece Jayden, who passed away from brain cancer in 2009, with all proceeds going to these charities helping kids and their families who are battling cancer.
The emcees for the event were Dave Steger Jr. and AJ McKenzie. The featured comedians were Tracy Schroeder from Appleton, Brady Gregurich from Antigo, Geoff LaFleur from Milwaukee and nationally recognized comedian Frank Roche. The event was sold out with over 300 people packing the North Star Lanes Banquet Hall. The event raised $4358, which will be split between the two charities.
A huge thank you to everyone who made the event possible, including Stephanie Steger, Terri Wild and North Star Lanes and their entire wonderful staff, Dave Steger Jr and AJ McKenzie for their great job emceeing the show, the 4 comedians who donated their time for the event, Tim and Maureen Gregurich, Addy Wermund (my fiancé- We got engaged at the show!), Irish Entertainment and Clint and Steph Powell.
The show was a success because of you all. And the biggest thank you to everyone who attended the show to make it a resounding success! Your support has truly been humbling and inspiring. Here’s to Chuckles 4 down the road. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
