FOWHE and the arts committee is proud to present the 6th annual, "Benefit With Friends", an evening of comedy to raise money for arts education at West Hollywood elementary! On Wednesday, October 28th from 8-10 pm (doors open at 7), be ready to laugh and have a great time, all the while supporting the arts at WeHo. We have an incredible line up of stand-up comedians, all donating their time and talent for our kids. Check out our performers (partial list, more being added!) at While you're checking that out, you can also purchase tickets through the site at the bottom of the page. Tickets are $50 each, and we will also be selling tickets at school one week before the event, starting on Wednesday, October 21st from 7:45 am until the bell - bring cash or your checkbook, and we'll also be taking credit cards. At the halfway point of the show, we'll be raffling off some awesome items (passes to the kid's brunch at the Magic Castle, Groundlings tickets and more!) and we'll have a couple of great auction items. If you have any questions, please email Rachel Quaintance at Invite your friends and family! Or, sponsor a teacher! All staff will be invited to attend regardless, but help us offset the cost of their tickets for half the price (only $25 to sponsor a teacher). It's going to be a fun, hilarious, adult night out! Please note - the Comedy Store requires everyone to be 21+ and they have a two drink minimum. Also, if you buy through our site, you will incur a small ticket fee.
