The Gentleman of Phi Kappa Tau invite you to join them for a night of laughs to benefit SeriousFun Children's Networks.

SeriousFun was founded in 1988 by Phi Kappa Tau Alumnus Paul Newman to provide camps where seriously ill children could escape the fear and isolation of their medical condition and, in his words, "raise a little hell." The camps are free to the children who attend, and all proceeds raised by this show will help keep it that way.
