A Comedy Fundraiser for Directed Energy
Wed, May 10, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Our 3rd Annual Comedy Fundraiser at Comic Strip!
On Wednesday, May 10th, Directed Energy ("DE") is hosting a night of stand-up comedy at Comic Strip with all proceeds from the evening benefitting the after-school character education programs run by our organization.
DE is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of under-resourced, pre-adolescent youth. Our goal is to positively engage at-risk youth in learning about themselves through education and sports in a weekly, out-of-school atmosphere.
Tickets to this special event are $55 in advance and $65 at the door. Purchase of tickets are tax-deductible. Please also note that Comic Strip takes a 2-drink minimum from patrons, which is 1 less than you'll probably have.
Where the Proceeds Go:
With only the donations you have provided, we have officially expanded to the west coast, launching an after-school soccer program in Orange County, CA.
We're on the ground twice a week at Richman Elementary School with 45 boys and girls, teaching them various soccer skills, but more importantly, focusing on character education, literacy and nutrition. And thus far, the feedback from students, parents and administrators has been fantastic.
We're leveraging this success into various new initiatives including:
- teaching the DE curriculum to coaches of select AAU HS basketball teams
- expanding into 2-3 more schools on the west coast
- applying our curriculum to field hockey and volleyball
- continuing expansion here on the east coast
Humble and excited,
The DE Team: Andrey, Ray, Risto, Rakosi, Mitch and Amanda
