About the show: PORTY for a Cause is an improv comedy show featuring three of Denver's best groups, Sassy Boyz, At the Barre, and Esoteric Mall. The shows are Saturday nights at the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse in Denver at 11pm. Dates include 2/4/17, 2/11/17, 3/4/17, 3/11/17, 3/18/17, and 4/1/17.

About the cause: The devastation created by the ongoing Syrian civil war has left the world with one of the largest humanitarian crisis in our modern era. Karam Foundation works with local NGO's in Eastern Aleppo to provide necessary emergency aid to the people of Eastern Aleppo. Your donations through this fundraiser go towards the immediate needs of these people, including food, heating supplies, and shelter.
