Marihelen Wheeler to Host "Funny Girls & Friends" Fundraiser

Fundraiser will feature local comedians Rara Imler, Amy Lawson, Simon Nash and Alyson Chadwick.

PRLog - Jul. 7, 2014 - Marihelen Wheeler, Democratic candidate for the US House of Representatives will host “Funny Girls Comedy Night.”  The fundraiser seeks to draw attention to the thriving Gainesville comedy scene and showcase local female talent.  The female comedians set to perform are Rara Imler, Amy Lawson and Alyson Chadwick.  Simon Nash will also perform.

“Many people know the Gainesville area is home to a wide variety of cultural activities and communities but few know about its strong and growing comedy scene.  Moreover, I would like to encourage more women to get into what is a male dominated profession.  In a way, it mirrors what I am trying to do -- we need more women in Congress and we need more women in comedy,” says Wheeler.

Tickets can be purchased online (https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/wheelerfunnygirls) or at the door.
