A comedy night aiming to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving will be held at Ben Franklin Place next week.
The I Promise to Laugh Like MADD event features comedians like Greg Shroder, who won the award for best comedian in the Valley last year.
Suzi Shore-Sauve, the executive director of the I Promise Mom Campaign, says the money raised will go toward their programming and that of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
"Part of it goes straight to the MADD Ottawa Chapter," she told CFRA. "They do incredible work; they support the families who are victims of tragedies that happen in the city."
The fundraiser takes place May 1; tickets can be purchased through the I Promise Mom Campaign or MADD Ottawa's website.
