The Habitat for Humanity raises funds with comedy


    By Spencer Flanagan

    Habitat for Humanity makes the world a better place one house at a time. Saturday night, however, it will be one laugh at a time.

    Saturday night at 8:30 the BYU chapter of Habitat for Humanity will host a benefit event featuring Comedy Sportz at the Tahitian Noni Auditorium at 5151 N. 300 West in Provo, near the shops at Riverwoods.

    ?APX Alarms is sponsoring [the event] so now every penny we make will go toward Habitat for Humanity in Utah County,? said Jonathan Viray, president of the BYU chapter of Habitat for Humanity. ?The money will be going to build homes for families in certain income brackets, on the lower end.?

    Comedy Sportz will perform and six lift tickets to Powder Mountain Ski Resort will be raffled off during the night. Tickets to the event can be purchased for $8 online at or at the door.

    Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization whose main goal is ?[to] build and renovate homes for families in need in our community,? said Kena Mathews, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Utah County. ?Our goal is to eliminate substandard housing and homelessness in our county.?
