Truly a ‘Red Carpet Evening’ with hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and beverages. This 21 years of age and older event features two outstanding comedians as well as our amazing live & silent auctions. We look forward to seeing you on our guest list!

Their Potential is BIG. Help Ingite it.

We’re rolling out the red carpet, and you are invited! Join Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon for a fabulous night of comedy, libations, and igniting potential. Presented by Cascade Disposal, our 25nd annual Comedy For Kids’ Sake is returning to the Tower Theatre November 4th, 2022, and promises to be the best yet!

All proceeds from Bend’s premier red carpet event, goes towards matching Central Oregon youth with caring adult mentors, also known as, DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL. Children benefit from a caring adult igniting their potential. Studies show youth with mentors do better in school and reach higher levels of education than those without, and there are hundreds of kids from Madras to La Pine who need mentors. Join us for a spectacular event, become a Defender of Potential, and change a life for the better, forever.
About the entertainment:

Tyler Boeh is professionally funny. He has won or been a finalist in several well-known comedy competitions from San Francisco to Boston, and performed in dozens of major cities in between. With a background in improv and a love for writing, Tyler’s act is fast paced with a shotgun delivery. His comedy can be described as high-energy, intelligent, and silly. Whether he is on the small stage of an intimate comedy club or performing at a theater, Tyler is comfortable, confident, and hilarious. He uses his quick wit and celebrated talent of "beatboxing" to bring audiences to hysterical heights. Tyler will not only be returning to share comedy with us, he will also be our Master of Ceremonies!

The evening includes a huge silent auction and an exciting live auction that gets the crowd competing! Get ready to travel, as our live auction will include two Round Trips Tickets anywhere in the world on Alaska (Value $2,500), a one - week stay in Cabo, Mexico, a trip to Tuscany, Italy with private cooking class and private wine tour, and a fishing adventure with a stay in a private cabin on the Lower Deschutes. Also for bid will be an amazing Bend Outdoor Ski Package, including a Season Pass to Mt. Bachelor and a Sled Dog Tour for two, and our annual "Show Stopper" including thousands of dollars in Wine and Beer!
