Comic Pain Relief 2007 is a night of comedy here in on May 30, 2007.
The event is titled Chronic Pain Relief 2007 and will be held at the Tempe Improv. We will also have brochures and other literature on different types of chronic pain including reflex sympathetic dystrophy. They are full of facts, tips, and loads of information on RSD.
We are hosting the event to spread awareness and raise money for RSD. We will have a short introduction and presentation by the Chairman of the Power Of Pain Foundation, Jim Ingle, Sr., with a description and information about the charities involved in this project. Then the show will kick off with Marby Ingle. Marby is a comedian from
. and is a family member of an RSD patient as well as a board member for the Power of Pain Foundation.
The headlining comedian will be who is has his own show on Comedy Central. In addition, we have many sponsors from around the phoenix area who have donated tickets for patients who want to come, but do not have the funds.
Tickets are $20. Our estimated attendance is 400. I would like to get your help in this project.
First, we plan to have a video montage of, “faces of RSD” to be playing during the pre-event dinner. If you would email me your picture along with your name, state and how long you have had RSD, or if you are a family member of someone with RSD, I will be sure to include it. Please pass on the information about the Comic Pain Relief 2007 event along with my contact info, so that I can get as many pictures as possible.
Second, let people know if you are in the Arizona area you can purchase tickets online at www.powerofpain.org or by calling . If you want to come to the event and are coming from out of town, I can get you a really discounted price at the Resort Suites of Scottsdale (they are one of our sponsors).
Third, all profits are being donated to the following: The RSDSA, American RSDHope, American Pain Foundation, Pain Initiative and Power of Pain Foundation. All of these are non-profit organizations that promote awareness and research for chronic pain and RSD. If you are interested in donating, helping, or have any questions, please let me know!
