ComedySportz and Humility of Mary Shelter Inc. are 'Helping With Humor'

Free evening of comedy designed to benefit area homeless shelter

ComedySportz Quad Cities and Humility of Mary Shelter Inc. are holding a free evening of comedy for a cause on February 10th, 6PM at The Establishment Theatre in Rock Island. The show will feature a stand-up act by founding ComedySportz member Jeff Adamson followed by a 'Half-Court' ComedySportz match.

All donations will go to the Humility of Mary Shelter Inc. which provides emergency shelter, transitional, and permanent supportive housing programs that offer opportunities for men and women experiencing homelessness to become emotionally, mentally, and physically more stable.

"My wife and I own and operate The Establishment, and my wife also works at the Humility of Mary Shelter in Davenport. We are passionate about its mission and thought that joining the two worlds will benefit the shelter," said ComedySportz owner Patrick Adamson.

The Humility of Mary Shelter has a capacity of 82 and is nearly full each night of the year. Their Night at the Shelter program suggests that an $820 donation per night ($10 x 82 beds) will help provide services and shelter to homeless individuals.

"We want to raise enough to sponsor a "Night at the Shelter". Some of the necessary funds to ensure the shelter's continuation have to come through private donations," said Christie Adamson, manager of ComedySportz.

This event is open to anyone in the public who wishes to enjoy a night of laughter and support the shelter's mission. Please call the Establishment Theatre's box office at (309) 786-1111 to make reservations.
