The lineup includes four local and regional comedians, including Mike McCarthy, Al Romas, Karen Fitzgerald and Susan Giudi. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the night of the show, if available. A raffle and silent auction are also planned. All the profits from the event will go directly to fund local cancer research and family support efforts through Cure on Wheels. The benefiting charities for Cure on Wheels events include Moffitt Cancer Center and 1Voice Foundation. Tickets can be purchased at www.cureonwheels.org or www.improvtampa.com.
“Cancer has affected my family quite a bit, losing both parents within the last six years to the disease,” says organizer Jack Bevilacqua. “Putting together this show enables me to help ensure that other families don’t have to go through what my family went through.”
The second event, named Cure on Wheels, will take place May 29-31, 2009 at Saint Leo University. The endurance bike-a-thon allows bikers to traverse one of several routes, covering anywhere from approximately 30 in one day to 165 miles over two days. In just two short years, Cure on Wheels has become the premier cycling cancer fundraiser in Florida in terms of benefits to riders, location, support, and entertainment.
For additional information, tickets and registration for the events, visit www.cureonwheels.org. Cure on Wheels is in its second year and is a Tampa Bay area fundraising organization that makes an annual donation to Moffitt Cancer Center and the 1Voice Foundation. The non-profit organization is committed to raising awareness and money for cancer research and family support services.
The 1Voice Foundation’s mission is to support children with childhood cancer during their time of need by creating one voice to connect families with helpful resources, assistance, and treatments to foster happiness and hope.
