Our local (and by local, we mean about 3 blocks away!) university, Wayne State University, has a world-renowned medical school. The gracious and smart students, future doctors all, take time every year to blow off some steam and use comedy to raise funds for local non profits in Detroit. This year, they are supporting City Year Detroit!
From WSU Medical’s E-news, Prognosis:
An annual tradition, Lampoon – set for March 12 – allows students to blow off steam through comedy while raising sorely needed funding for charitable and community efforts in the city.
Lampoon consists of tongue-in-cheek skits and videos produced by members of each of the four medical classes. Each class produces about 20 minutes worth of material for the evening’s entertainment. This year’s theme is “Get Wayned.”
The program begins at 6:27 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Hall, 431 E Congress, Detroit. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $40 for VIP seating. They may be purchased on line at http://www.med.wayne.edu/aesculapians/lampoon2011.asp or in the Scott Hall cafeteria during lunch.
Thank you Wayne State!
