‘FunnyRaiser’ for Safe Haven

This brings a new meaning to “laughter at your expense.” A group of Leadership Duluth alumni are hosting the second annual “FunnyRaiser,” which gives all of its proceeds to Safe Haven, a Duluth shelter and resource center for victims of domestic abuse.

The event, which includes live comedy, food, drinks, raffles and a silent auction, is 5:30-9 p.m. May 23 at Clyde Iron Works, 2920 W. Michigan St. in Lincoln Park.

More than 200 people attended last year’s inaugural event that raised nearly $13,000, and the group wants to set a new mark.

Tickets are $20. Go to the Safe Haven website to buy tickets, make a donation or for more information. Check out the event on Facebook, too.
