DS Action's 8th Annual Comedy Ball Flashback to the Totally Tubular 80's
DS Action invites you to join us as we celebrate our 8th Annual "Flashback to the Totally Tubular 80's" Comedy Ball. We are excited to announce that we will be hosting this event on a Friday evening this year! On Friday, November 17, 2017 at 7 pm, guests will experience an 80's themed event at the Bernardo Heights Country Club. This annual Charity Comedy Event and Auction raises funds to support individuals with Down syndrome and their families. DS Action partnered with Rady Children's Hospital – San Diego in 2008 to establish the Down Syndrome Center. The Comedy Ball provides much-needed funding to provide the community with a specialty medical facility for people with Down syndrome.
The evening begins at 7 pm as we take a step back in time to the 1980’s, where big hair was cool, the computer was introduced as the technology of the future, Atari was the cutting-edge video game, Rubics cube, boom boxes, leg warmers, parachute pants, Air Jordan’s were all hot items. Everyone will be encouraged to attend in 80’s themed attire, to set the stage for a night of fun, laughter, and inspiration.
At 8:00 pm, the show will begin with a presentation from DS Action, immediately followed by the high energy of our live auction, led by Auctioneer, Scott Bowman. This is not your typical live auction. If you haven't attended DS Action's Comedy Ball in the past, you will not want to miss it. As the auction wraps up, the main event begins, with the Comedy Show. Sit back, relax and be entertained by our spectacular line-up of comedians.
