Stand Up to Stop Violence at the Fox Tucson Theatre, 17 W. Congress St.
Join Host David Fitzsimmons, Headliner Eric O’Shea and top local comedians for one hilarious night of comedy! Get ready to go to a funny place you’ve never been before, where basketball heroes and talented comedians come together for charity. The Second Annual Stand Up to Stop Violence comedy fundraiser benefits the Emerge Center to Prevent Domestic Abuse and the Blair Charity Group.
Local comedians to perform include Elliot Glicksman, Gary Hood, Suzie Sexton, Nick Seivert, Nancy Stanley, Tom Potter, and Joey G.
KVOI talk show host John C. Scott interviewed two attorneys Elliott Glicksman and Susan Agrillo (aka Suzie Sexton) on August 23 about this comedic show/benefit. Click here to listen to that interview which is posted on the Tucsonsentinel.com website. I was fortunate caller #5 to the radio show contest & won two free tickets for this event. As the former Interim Director of the Domestic Violence Commission (and former Commissioner) here in Tucson, and a former staff attorney for an Americorps DV Victims Project back in Hawaii, this will be a meaningful show for me (and my husband).
Get tickets at the Fox Theater box office or online here from the Fox website. Tickets range form $15 to $50. ($50 VIP tickets includes 1 drink ticket, preferred seating, meet and greet with appetizers and desserts). Student tickets are only $10.
More info about this comedic group, to to www.standuptostopviolence.com. Suzie Sexton’s sister was mugged & murdered in Chicago in 1980, so she personally knows about violence.
Stand Up To Stop Violence is an organization that cares. Building hope through laughter and striving to involve the community actively. Through event hosting with various comedians in the industry, Stand Up To Stop Violence raises funds to donate to various charities.
So please stand with me to “Stand Up to Stop Violence” (especially against women & children).
