Media Release –

For Immediate Release Area churches partner with Community Center of Hope Food Pantry to host Comedy Fundraiser

Mosinee, Wisconsin: Community Center of Hope (CCH) Food Pantry, serving southern Marathon County residents, would like to invite the community to a comedy show fundraiser on Friday, February 9 featuring the comedic talents of “Fish Sticks Comedy”. The show will start at 6:30 pm at the Creske Center Auditorium, 1000 High Street, Mosinee; and feature opening acts from area musicians.

“Our local churches are really the key element in this being a successful fundraiser for us,” stated Executive Director Amy Bergstrom.” The CCH Board of Directors along with Bergstrom reached out to churches to help cover the cost of bring the troupe in. “To date, we have six churches (Mosinee United Methodist, Good News Church and St. John Lutheran in Mosinee, Mt. Calvary in Rothschild, New Day in Weston and Highland Community Church with locations in Wausau, Marathon, and Weston) who have signed on to sponsor at a minimum of $100 each. We even had a local pastor and his wife who aren’t currently leading a church, send funds to help us out! We are just $300 short of our sponsorship goal, but we have reached out to a few more churches and pastors. I’m confident we will get there!”

Fish Sticks, whose calling-card is “club-level comedy, but keeping it clean” is known for their hilarious and ever-changing humor by taking suggestions and often volunteers from the audience. More information on the group can be found at their website at www.fishstickscomedy.com.
