I don't think I need to stress how much the people of Clendenin, western Greenbrier County, Richwood, and many others need our help. I am putting on a comedy fundraising show this Friday night to help raise money to buy supplies to take to the shelters and people in need. This money will go directly into buying the cleaning supplies and food and clothing (I will contact the places that need the items). The comedians are not making any money on this show. Fireside Bar and Lounge has been gracious enough to open up Friday night to let us have a show there. There won't be a set entry fee, but a donation is required. Whether you can give $1.00 or $1,000.00, all amounts will be accepted. There's only so much we can do to help replace, and since there are long processes for helping rebuild houses, and federal aid to help with certain things, this money will be used to help with the miscellaneous items that are needed at shelters.
Please join us Friday night, with the doors opening at 9:00 pm, and the show will start at 10:00 pm. So go, enjoy Live on the Levee, or whatever your Friday evening holds, then come join us and bring your wallets so we can help our fellow West Virginians in need. The comedians involved include my fellow Tall Boys Comedy Tour members, Jacob Hall and Andy Frampton, along with sets by other local comedians, such as Ian Nolte, Cody Lambert, Nathan Thomas, and Angela Davis. The show could be considerably longer than a normal comedy show, and we will not frown upon people coming to the show just for a few minutes to help out the cause. This show is definitely more about the community support than it is about comedy and bar tabs. However, we will be funny. We will have a great time. We will offer a few hours of relief for everybody in these trying times.
If you have any questions, feel free to look me up on Facebook and ask, comment below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

We prefer cash, as checks would need time to clear a bank account before being used, and I would prefer to use the money Saturday morning. There may also be an option to donate items in place of money, but the logistics, combined with the location of the show could potentially make that difficult.
