On Dec. 13, The Greenhill Hotel is hosting a Yuk Yuks fundraising event for the Crowsnest Pass Women’s Resource Crisis Centre.
The evening will feature comedian Marcus Beaubier, a Newfoundlander living in Alberta.
According to YYComedy, Beaubier has been trying to escape the stereotype since he left his home province.
“He’s a little rough around the edges but he’s really funny,” says Desiree Simoneau, coordinator at the Women’s Resource Crisis Centre.
He was one of the founding members of “The Audiotoon Theatre,” a sketch comedy troupe based out of St. John’s and has appeared on CBC, XM Radio’s Laugh Attack and several feature films.
The event will also feature a catered meal from Chris’ Restaurant and performances by Crowsnest musicians Tynan Groves, Cierra Shortreed and Jeff Chambers.
There will also be a silent auction and a 50-50 draw.
“I was a single parent at one time and I know how tough it can be at Christmas,” says Greenhill owner Karen Mosby-Kubic who is donating the venue and putting funds toward hiring Beaubier.

Simoneau says Scotia Bank is matching their ticket sales by up to $5,000 through their brighter futures program. They’ll also be matching the 50-50 draw.
The Community Peace Officer will be working the door along with a member of the Fire/Rescue Department.
Simoneau says the fundraising session will go to support a number of initiatives including possibly an emergency fund for the Centre. She says provincial funding cuts have meant the Centre cannot help those in need as quickly as she’d like.
Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at the Scotia Bank in Blairmore. Doors open at 6 p.m. and The Greenhill Hotel will be closed from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. to allow for setup.
