Comedy Slam Hard Rock Hotel San Diego

The Native Strong Comedy Slam returns

This year we are celebrating the 4th Annual Native Strong Comedy Slam the evening of Thursday, April 19, at the stunning Smith Center in downtown Las Vegas.

When Deana and I purchased Raving last year, it was with great pleasure that we continue Raving’s fundraising efforts on behalf of the Notah Begay III Foundation (NB3F). As a registered member of the Coquille Indian Tribe in Oregon, I was already familiar with the important work of NB3F. I have personally watched members of my own family suffer from this preventable disease. It’s my hope through the NB3F partnership and events like the Comedy Slam we can raise awareness and money to eliminate this disease for our future generations. I know, at times, it can feel like we can’t make a difference. However, that is not the case with childhood diabetes.

With that said, I’m reaching out to you to ask you for your support for this year’s event taking place April 19 during NIGA. We’re delighted to be hosting the Comedy Slam at the nationally-renowned Smith Center. With this new venue, as a sponsor, you can now choose from a variety of seating options with tables on the floor or balcony, perfect for your groups of four, six, eight or you could even reserve the entire balcony for a group of your personal clients, as well as individual tickets. Please visit our website for more information www.NativeStrongComedySlam.com. I think you’ll like the setting as much as we do!

The evening begins at 6:30 pm with cocktails outdoors in the courtyard which is included in your ticket. And what I’ve enjoyed most attending this event, is the great conversations and folks I’ve met even before the show starts! This year shouldn’t be any different as we expect over 200 of Tribal gaming’s industry leaders and supporters. The show begins at 9:00 pm inside Myron’s Cabaret Jazz room. If you recall from last year, the event was packed, and we sold every single seat.

Our Native American comics are Ernie Tsosie, headliner Howie Miller and our long-time event host Larry Omaha. Again, this evening of laughs benefits NB3F and its critically important work addressing the health and fitness of Native American youth. We’re thrilled that this event is once again endorsed by Chairman Ernie Stevens, Jr. and the National Indian Gaming Association. We are also pleased to announce that Notah Begay III will be attending this year!

Sincere thanks for your support of this very important event and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I hope you buy a table or heck, a couple of tables, and bring your clients, your friends, your spouse and your business associates. Make sure to book your table fast; we will sell out.
