Retro Party for Make-A-Wish

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - This Saturday Groove is hosting its first benefit at Jokers Comedy and Night Club in Cedar Falls.

The retro-themed event will benefit Make-A-Wish and feature the comedy of John Pinney.

Tickets cost $20.00 for the full evening, of which, $5.00 of each ticket is given to Make-A-Wish. That gets the attendee into the pre-party and comedy showcase. Plus, if you dress in outfits from the 60's, 70's or 80's, you'll get a free ticket to a future comedy night at Jokers.

The event begins at 7 p.m. July 18th. You can reserve tickets by logging on to http://www.getyourgrooveon.org/.

The evening's entertainment, John Pinney, was a professional boxer at age nineteen. He had 42 pro-fights and became the "Southern Middle Weight Champion." He was suspended from boxing after losing a fight on a bad decision because he remarked, "I knew I was in trouble when the judges had seeing-eye dogs."
