Raising funds to support local sports teams is no laughing matter, but a comedy night to aid the Ballenas Whalers football team will provide some giggles and more on Friday, October 18.

The Ballenas Whalers Football Support Society is hosting the comedy night in the Tidal room at the Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville.  Eight comedians from Victoria to Nanaimo will be giving the crowd their best one-liners, imitations and ridiculous moments.

The event will also feature a live auction for an official CFL football autographed by members of the BC Lions Football team and a pair of game tickets.  Many other great items will be up for grabs in a silent auction.

All proceeds from fundraiser go to the Ballenas Whalers Football Support Society which has been making it possible for high school football to thrive in the community.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and safe rides home will be available by donation.   Tickets are $25 and include a burger and beer.  For tickets contact Heather Martin at Hfomartin@shaw.ca.
