Laughter is Good Medicine

The Indian Health Center of Santa Clara Valley will be holding their 7th Annual Comedy Jam
fundraiser on Saturday, October 19, 2013, at the Campbell Community Center’s Heritage Theate in Campbell, CA. Tickets for the Comedy Show are $20 and all seats are general admission. Doors will open at 6:30 pm and the show will start at 7.

There will also be a Reception from 5 – 6:30 pm; for ticket information please contact Liz Hunt at (408) 666-2105 or

The comedy line up for this event will include comedians Jason Love, Jeff Applebaum, and Dean Haglund. The Master of Ceremonies is Bob Sarlatte, the Field Annoucer for the San Francisco 49ers football team.

Arrive early to review the Silent Auction item; there will also be a Live Auction during the show.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Indian Health Center’s Native American Youth
Empowerment Program. This program provides American Indian youth with cultural, educational and traditional activities that help them reconnect with their heritage. According to a recent survey, Native American youth had the highest rates of alcohol use (32.8%), and 24.5% of Native high school students had made a suicide plan. Reconnecting Native youth with their Indian cultural heritage helps them build self-esteem and prevents high-risk behavior like gang involvement and substance abuse.
