Reminder: ‘Folks to Give’ is tonight, May 25


“Folks to Give”, a charity comedy show produced by Decaturish with the support of Avondale Towne Cinema, is tonight at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets will be available at the door. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $35 for VIP. There are only a few VIP tickets left, and VIP ticket holders will get front row seats and two free beers donated by Wild Heaven brewery.

All proceeds will benefit CARE, which is headquartered in Atlanta and is committed to fighting global poverty. Time, talent and space are being donated so all proceeds can go directly to this charity. So far this event has raised more than $1,000. To buy tickets online, click here.
