Anyone looking for laughs will enjoy the comedy night to be hosted by the Ponoka Stampeders hockey team Saturday, Nov. 7 at 5 p.m.

The event is a fundraiser to help with operations of the team, said organizer and treasurer Debbie Lamey. This year’s comedy headliner is Tim Nutt who has been featured in the Just For Laughs comedy tour.

This is the second year the Stampeders are hosting a fundraiser and players will be attending the night to meet with fans and attendees. Lamey said there will also be a live auction that will benefit the team this year. “It’s a hefty budget that takes the team around,” Lamey added.

Money will go to updating equipment, paying for ice time, busing and drivers and meals when on the road. A drive home service will be organized for the evening, said Lamey, with the hopes that a second designated driver will bring a person’s car home at the same time.

She added that two parents from the Ponoka Gymnastics and Trampoline Club will be running the bar with tips going to benefit the club.
