THIS YEAR marks the third time that Investors Group has hosted its Comedy Tour.

Starring funny men Jim Dailakis, Ryan Hamilton and Greg Hahn, Investors Group held this exclusive event Oct 21.

With a full house of clients and guests attending, about $4,000 in food donations were received at the door and an additional $4,247 in cash was donated by the consultants at Investors Group.

The only hitch with the event was that the comedians' flight was turned back to Vancouver due to the weather.

Through some incredible efforts, the comedians arrived on two different flights and the show was a success. With this third Comedy Tour event, Investors Group in Terrace has collected more than $10,000 in food and made cash donations of more than $7,000.
