Fergus Falls — Do you want to get a little sample of Las Vegas and help the arts in the Fergus Falls area at the same time? Do you want a chance to win a 7-day stay in Mexico, a 1-night stay at Shooting Star Casino, or cash prizes? Then come to the big annual fall fundraiser at A Center for the Arts in its theater in downtown Fergus Falls on Saturday, Oct. 3!
The theme of this year’s fundraiser is “Viva Las Fergus!” The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with light appetizers, a cash bar, socializing, a silent auction, and a raffle drawing for one of 17 great prizes. Food trucks from Ole & Lena’s Pizzeria and Big Easy Bistro will be parked behind the theater. Everyone attending “Viva Las Fergus” will receive two chips to exchange for two items at the food trucks. Admission to Tim Gabrielson: The Magic of Comedy, wraps up the evening. A reservation that includes the whole evening is $50 per person and can be made by calling AC4TA at 218-736-5453.
At 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3, as seen live in Las Vegas and on national television, Tim Gabrielson: The Magic of Comedy begins. Using quick wit, interactive magic, and a playful spirit to connect with his audience, Tim focuses on his underlying theme of “Keeping It Funny” and takes the audience along on the comedic journey. He masterfully weaves a subtle, uplifting message throughout his show and leaves the audience thoroughly entertained, enlivened, and inspired. Admission to Tim’s show is included for those attending “Viva Las Fergus!” at no additional charge. Show-only tickets for general seating in the back of the theater are $20 for adults and $6 for students.
