LAGUNA BEACH, CA, UNITED STATES, October 4, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Extraordinary Lives Foundation (ELF) – a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving children’s mental health and wellness – will present its annual Comedy Night fundraiser on Wednesday, October 19 on the scenic Festival of Arts grounds in Laguna Beach. This year’s featured comedians include headliner George Wang, Lowell Benjamin and comedian/host Frances Dilorinzo.
Over 200 guests are expected to attend the lively evening featuring silent auction, dinner, and comedy show.
