Arts Garage in Delray turns to comedy for summer fundraiser
As Arts Garage in Delray Beach emerges from COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the nonprofit wanted to ensure that laughter and fun were at the center of its post-pandemic fundraising by hosting Comedy for a cause with SARGE. The show will begin at 7 p.m. on June 11 at Arts Garage, 94 NE 2nd Ave., as a summer fundraising event.
Comedian SARGE has spent years entertaining audiences in the United States, and his talents include playing the piano, motivational speaking, and writing a book about his struggles with drug addiction and his comedy career. Artists he opened up to include Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, Paul Anka, The Beach Boys, The Four Tops, Taylor Dayne, Donna Summer and Wayne Newton.
The humorous event will feature free light snacks, a cash bar drink and a raffle with $ 250 in scratch lottery tickets. VIP tickets with front row seats cost $ 75, while general admission tickets sell for $ 50. Those interested in tickets can call the box office at 561.450.6357 or visit ArtsGarage.org.
Using art and entertainment as a way to improve the Palm Beach community, Art Garage offers multicultural programming that strives to produce inclusion in the arts.
“Funds raised from this fun event will support the various events, educational programs and exhibitions of emerging artists of Art Garage,” said Marjorie Waldo, President and CEO of Arts Garage.
