Rotary Club of Ignacio announces its second Burger, Brews, and Comedy Night fundraiser and BBQ at the Jonas Center at the Indian Valley Campus of the College of Marin from 6-9 p.m., Saturday, September 23, 2023. Everyone is invited to enjoy this special evening. Early bird tickets are just $100 a person (up until September 10 when they go to $110) with corporate sponsorship tables for 8 for $1,000 which include VIP seating and special event recognition.

Local comedians performing at the event will include our Headliner Gina Stahl-Haven who is a Novato resident and San Francisco Bay Area based comic.  Gina was the 2nd place winner of the 2019 San Francisco International Comedy Competition, was the first woman in 36 years and the only woman other than Ellen DeGeneres to hold this title.

Our opening comedian is Sue Alfieri who is best known for her comedic story telling about her adventures being a New Jersey Italian and raising a family in California.  She has performed at the Punchline, The Hollywood Improv and Comedy Store.  Samson Koletkar (aka Mahatma Moses) was born in Mumbai and raised Jewish. Growing up in the world's most crowded city, Samson brings a refreshingly new approach to cerebral, witty, thought-provoking, clean humor with a first-generation immigrant perspective.

A special treat for you will be Shawna McNulty, local singer and actor, who performed as Snow White with Beach Blanket Babylon. Shawna’s big voice will be accompanied by her pianist.

“We're putting the "fun" back into fundraising to make this evening memorable.” Andrei Jigalin, President of the Rotary Club of Ignacio said, “We’ll have great food, great entertainment, and great auction items to round out the evening, all proceeds going to Rotary-sponsored local and international service projects.”

Over the last year, Rotary Club of Ignacio provided nearly $100,000 worth of grants that included tree planting at the College of Marin, graduating senior college scholarships, monarch butterfly habitat restoration, Novato High School baseball dugout and internationally grants provided computers for disadvantaged youth in the Philippines, hygiene kits for needy children in Uganda, mobile medical clinics in Ukraine. Funds for these projects and more come from local sponsors and events like this one.
