Councilman Dee Andrews and Shante Broadus of Boss Lady Entertainment to Host Comedy Fundraiser
2010-10-11 · By Editor
Get ready to witness not only a comedy show, but an event! Combining a blend of improvisation and stand up comedy sets. Laughin’ Large is a collaborative event to raise funds to benefit the I Am S.H.A.N.T.E Foundation and the 23rd Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace & Unity Parade Celebration. Shante Broadus, the wife of legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, founded the I Am S.H.AN.T.E (Seeking Her Ambition Necessary To Excel) Foundation. A mentoring program that seeks to help inner city girls (ages 7-18) by teaching them the essentials of being a young woman and developing qualities of working as a team, health and fitness, etiquette, and the importance of being environmentally conscious. “Long Beach is my hometown and it is so wonderful to have the opportunity to give back to the community while helping these young girls aspire to be bigger and better in life”, said Mrs. Broadus.
The event will also benefit the annual City of Long Beach Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace & Unity Parade Celebration that brings thousands of people together to celebrate the revolutionary spirit of one of America’s most prominent advocates for racial justice, equality, and non-violence. The Office of Councilman Dee Andrews produces the annual community event and is seeking additional sponsorship due to the reduced funding of over 50 percent from the past 3 years. “It is always a pleasure to see one of our Long Beach family members step up to give back to the community. I have known Mrs. Broadus for many years and I am very pleased to partner with her on this very special occasion to support these two important causes”, said Councilman Dee Andrews.
The Laughin’ Large, Red Carpet Comedy Fundraiser, is 7:00 pm, Thursday, October 21, 2010 at the Laugh Factory, 151 S. Pine Ave, Long Beach, 90802.
This fundraising event will include class act comedians that will keep you laughing large.
