Raise the Woof a great chance to support UPAWS

Having a few good laughs and getting to raise funds for the local animal shelter at the same time? That sounds like a win-win to us.

On Friday, the comedians from Raise the Woof will be at the River Rock Lanes & Banquet Center in Ishpeming.

The event, sponsored by the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter, will begin at 8:30 p.m. and will feature comedians Steve Mazan and Cal Murata. Proceeds from the event will benefit UPAWS.

Both Mazan and Murata are affiliated with Raise the Woof, a group of comedians who are committed to spreading awareness and raising money for animal rescues and shelters.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets for the show are $20 each or two for $30 and are available online at www.upaws.org. Tickets will also be available at the door but all tickets purchased at the venue will be $20. Cocktails and appetizers will be available at the event, with a 50/50 raffle also taking place.

In addition, a second Raise the Woof event is scheduled for Saturday at the Orpheum Theater in Hancock.

The show will benefit the Copper Country Humane Society and is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m.

Tickets for that event are the same price as the Ishpeming show and are available to be purchased at www.cchumanesociety.com and can also be bought at the door.

With the recent dose of bad weather our area has been hit with, most of us could use a little comic relief.

This event is a great way to treat those winter blues, while also contributing to a great cause.
