Comedy For Corbin — a fundraiser for Castlegar boy Corbin Lew, who is fighting lymphoma — was created because Drex and Johnson of Mountain FM’s morning show know how much the family loves to laugh.

So they, along with Nelson-based performer Lucas Myers (pictured at left), who played a character from Creston and Abe Fominoff (pictured on stage below), who took the audience through the comedic perils of his love life, teamed up at the Fireside Inn last Friday night to raise money through laughter.

And raise money they did.

The show raised approximately $1,500 according to Drex. Another donation from the Maximum Ice hockey team came in that evening as well, which added another $1,000 to the evening’s total. Dwayne Wheeler, president of the team, said the money was collected through door prizes at their year-end tournament earlier this month. The cheque was gratefully accepted by Corbin’s great aunt and uncle.
