The Backpack Program of Newton's The Corner Table is hosting their 4th annual Standup to Hunger fundraiser on Tuesday April 26th at Novel Taproom in Newton. The event will feature comedian Shaun Jones. 

Doors will open at 6 and, the show will start promptly at 7:30. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased by calling 828-464-0355.  Tickets are expected to sell out quickly and seating is limited. This show is for ages 21+ and the content shared is at the discretion of the comedian.  All those who attend will have the opportunity enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres prior to the show.

Sponsorships for the event are still available and range from $150 to $1,000. Current 2022 sponsors include Village Motors of Conover, Catawba Pediatric Associates, Linthead Properties, Cargo Transporters, Shana & Jeffrey White, Donnie’s Tax Service, Greater Hickory Jaycees, Maiden Small Animal Hospital, Reg & Claudia Moore, Beckley, Whitener & Wetmore Wealth Advisors, Homes with Sheenia, Mark and Kim Bolick, Longworth Bail Bonds, and Telco Community Credit Union.

All funds received will be used for the Backpack Program to continue eliminating hunger as a barrier to a good education for local school children by providing bags full of food each weekend of the school year.  “We’re excited to partner with Novel as they host the Backpack Program and help promote our annual comedy show fundraiser.  We encourage you to come spend the evening laughing while raising vital funding for the program,” said Amanda Newton, Backpack Program Coordinator. “The money we raise will make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate in our community.
