Little By Little: A Comedy Fundraiser At Seven Dining Lounge January 12th

4 Jan
littlebylittleOn January 12th, you are invited to a night of stand up comedy with the aim of raising funds for two great organizations, Union Gospel Mission and Covenant House. Seven Dining Lounge, 53 West Broadway, is hosting Little By Little which features the comedic talent of Simon King who brings along Ed Konyha and Sam Tonning to entertain you for an evening.  Simon we hear has an aggressive, but intelligent style of humour.  Simon is a seasoned comedian with appearances on Comedy Network, Comedy Central, CBC and CTV to name a few. He has a commanding presence and will be sure to present a great performance for two great local organizations doing so much for those that have so little.  With the cold weather snap, Covenant House and Union Gospel Mission are doing so much more and could use every bit of help they could get. To support them, you just need to show up and provide a minimum $10 donation at the door.  Of course, if you can’t attend, you can still go online and donate to either (or both) organizations to help them do the great work they do.  The doors open at 8:00 pm on January 12th, show begins at 8:30 pm. You can also purchase your tickets online via Eventbrite to reserve your spot(s).
