Money raised by the “Light up a Life Comedy Gala” at the Civic Pub tomorrow will go towards solar powered systems, training small business operators and supporting the first year of business.

Some of the ACT’s best-known comedians,  Hamish Hudson, Emo Parsonson, Chris Ryan, Jay Sullivan and Tom Gibson, will bring on the laughs as patrons reach into their pockets for  a good cause.
