Lots of laughs raises lots of cash
Lots of laughs raised lots of money for a good cause Saturday night.
The #StandUp4FSHD Comedy Night featuring comedians Dino Archie and Carter Hortie put on as a fundraiser for FSH Muscular Dystrophy brought in $7,500.
The event was organized by Asifa Lalji, sister of New Westminster Hyacks varsity head coach and TSN reporter Farhan Lalji. She suffers from the disease, but the evening was dedicated to Ann Hardon who had it as well but passed away from other health complications in June.
“This event did more than raise money and awareness for FSHD. It reminded us that anyone with challenges needs two things to help them get through it – support and a sense of humour. Both were overflowing that night!” said Lalji.
She added plans are underway for another comedy night in 2015.
