Hopelink hosting comedy benefit

Hopelink is hosting a comedy night on Wednesday as a benefit fundraiser for the agency's End Summer Hunger program. Comedy Relief features headlining comics Joe Vespaziani and Brad Upton and other guests.

Comedy Relief will be held at the Kirkland Performance Center at 350 Kirkland Ave. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. A hosted dessert reception and no-host bar will both be available at intermission.

Tickets are $45 per person, or $40 per person for groups of four or more. Tickets can be purchased by calling 425-897-3703 or by e-mailing rsvp@hope-link.org.

Hopelink's End Summer Hunger program raises money and food to stock its food-bank shelves during the high-demand summer months when free or reduced-cost school meals are not available. During that time, low-income families turn to Hopelink for extra groceries to feed their school-age children.
