Family Service Inc. is hosting Projectile Comedy in its new fundraiser, The Benefit 2013, set for Friday, Oct. 18, at the Northern Hotel.
This year’s event theme is “Comedy, Cocktails & Cuisine,” which holds the promise of an entertaining evening accompanied by dining among friends.
Cocktails and silent auction review begin at 6 p.m. Dinner is at 7:30 p.m., followed by Projectile Comedy, a popular Montana professional comedy troupe that delivers cutting-edge comedy of all forms wrapped up into one show, which includes stand-up, sketch, short-form and long-form improv.
Dedicated volunteers are rounding out a strong committee to plan The Benefit, chaired this year by Billings’ civic and business leaders Brad and Pam Anderson, of Anderson Management Group.
