on August 11th, 2007 at the Elk's Club
Miami, FL: THEY improv, South Florida's preeminent improv troupe, continued their effort at changing the face of comedy in South Florida with their benefit performance for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life on August 11th in the Crystal Room at the Elk's Club at 10301 Sunset Drive in Miami.
The evening featured THEY improv along with some stand-up comedians and surprises that kept the audience roaring with laughter with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society Relay For Life. The evening was sponsored by team: Mission Not Impossible of the East Kendall Relay For Life.
More than 3.5 million people in 4,800 communities nationwide have joined the Relay For Life effort to eliminate cancer in our lifetimes. Teams of families, friends and coworkers join together to CELEBRATE the lives of those who have battled cancer, REMEMBER those lost and FIGHT BACK against a disease that takes too much from far too many.
"When you look at a disease like cancer, it is easy to become overwhelmed," said THEY improv Director Todd Rice. "The Relay is all about celebrating life and coming together to provide support and encouragement to those fighting the battle. THEY improv is happy to be part of any team effort that looks to do this much good. Together, the Mission is NOT Impossible."
The THEY improv 'Comedy With a Cause' program continues to raise money for charities while changing the face of comedy in South Florida. The program has helped local and national charities find funds and attention for their causes while entertaining audiences at some of South Florida's most prestigious venues.
"We are excited to have THEY improv help us in this effort," said Mission Not Impossible team member Sandy Paster. "Together we can raise some more money and awareness for this worthwhile cause. Come spend an evening of enjoyment and join our team in helping make a difference."
All proceeds from the event went to the organization with a great deal of thanks shown for the Elks Club for providing the venue.
