Comedy Night Benefits Two Windsor Organizations

Recently, MMG sponsored the upcoming Just Cause for Laughs in Windsor, ON to raise money for Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation and Beyond Disability Rehabilitation Network. Below, is a clipping from the Windsor Star describing the event.

Brenda, Peter and James Campbell unveil a plaque in memory of the late Bernard Campbell who was an advocate for people living with chronic disabilities. Bernard Campbell was a founding member and board chair of the Beyond Disability Rehabilitation Network. The ceremony took place at Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare to announce the Just Cause for Laughs fundraiser that will take place on May 31, 2016 at the Water’s Edge Event Centre in Windsor.

Laughter is the best medicine and two local organizations are out to prove it.

Members of local businesses will be performing in a first-of-its-kind standup comedy night next month to raise money for the Children’s Aid Foundation and Beyond Disability Rehabilitation Network.

Just Cause for Laughs, the first of four charity comedy events put on by Cause Productions, will feature five acts produced by its business sponsors. Standup comedian Glen Foster will also be performing.

“This idea has been kicking around for a while, so, finally, the opportunity is here and we jumped on it with both feet,” said Robert LaBrecque, one of the event’s co-ordinators and director of client services at BridgePoint Financial Group. “I couldn’t be happier.”

The 10 sponsors, according to LaBrecque, have each donated $5,000 to the cause. The money will be equally split between the two foundations. It will contribute to the Children’s Aid campaign, You Can Write a Children’s Story, which is designed to empower youth and provide financial assistance to their families. It will also provide Beyond Disability, which focuses on improving people’s access to rehabilitation centres across the region, with money for start-up office equipment and promotional tools.

Brenda Campbell, whose family had previously been affected by the cost of medical travel, said she hopes this money will help Beyond Disability become better-established as a charity.

“From the perspective of someone married to a person who needed a lot of services this event is going to be wonderful,” said Campbell, whose husband, former RCMP officer Bernie Campbell, died in 2013 of complications from a genetic malady called AV malformation. “It’s going to take time to get everything together but at least it’s a start.”

To continue helping these foundations, LaBrecque said he wants Just Cause for Laughs — this year to be held on May 31 at Water’s Edge Event Centre in Windsor — to become and annual event. He said its uniqueness, the venue and the ticket prices — at $49 per person — increase its likelihood of continuing to run in the future.

“I can’t see how we don’t (continue) now,” he said.
