Tickets still available for UPAWS' 'Raise the Woof' comedy night fundraiser

SANDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter is once again hosting the Raise the Woof comedy night to kick off fundraising efforts for 2020.

Friday, January 17, UPAWS will host two showings of the "Raise the Woof" comedy night fundraiser event in Ishpeming.

Amber Talo, the UPAWS Board Treasurer, says its popularity in past years led the organization to expand the comedy night into two showings. The first show will be dinner and a show, and the "late night" will be cocktails and a show.

Raise the Woof helps support the mission of UPAWS in finding forever homes for animals.

Raise the Woof takes place Friday, January 17 at the Rock River Lanes, located at 1011 North Rd in Ishpeming. The first show is at 6 p.m. and the late show is at 9:15 p.m. This show is suited for an audience 16 years of age and older.
