Sometimes we get so busy that we forget to blog about fun events that we get to cover. One of those was the Variety Children’s Comedy Benefit that headlined Zach Galifianakis. It happened during the always fun SF Sketchfest, and was help at The Punchline’s in support of Variety’s Therapeutic Scholarship Program. The program proving scholarships to deserving disabled children to receive specialized care and to achieve greatness through their Mobility Program (providing specialized adaptive bikes, wheelchairs, and medical equipment for children suffering from degenerative illnesses), the Compassion Fund (providing gas cards, hotel stays and groceries to families traveling far distances to visit their hospitalized children), and the Outreach for At-Risk Youth Program (providing assistance to after-school and community youth programs).
On hand were many luminaries including San Francisco 49ers great quarterback Joe Montana as well as Renel Brooks-Moon, the Giants Announcer and KISS FM Radio Host, Fiona Ma, former SF Supervisor and California Assembly Speaker Pro Tempore, Mike Sugerman of CBS 5 and KCBS Radio Reporter and comedian Wavy Gravy.
