Stand up for Arthritis – Oct 13 as part of “Move to Improve”

Note from our director, Mina Liccione:

I am delighted to be organizing another comedy benefit show for Emirates Arthritis Foundation! Our team of comedians had a wonderful time last year and are thrilled to be able to, in some small way, support this incredible and much needed foundation. This year the format will be different. The comedy show will take place at 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 13 at the Park Regis Hotel. EAF has continued their “Move to Improve” event offering a slew of activities happening  over a 2 day period in honor of World Arthritis Day. The activities include Tai chi master classes, stress reduction tools, free counseling sessions, comfort fashion show and much more. The “Stand Up for Arthritis!” Comedy Show will be in the middle of the second day giving guests a chance to have a nice lunch and well deserved laughs. The 2 day event and all activities are FREE of charge including the comedy show. There will be a box for guests to make donations, all proceeds going directly to Emirates Arthritis Foundation and helping those in need afford medications.

We have a fantastic line-up including Ellen Gayle Harewood, Lamya Tawfik, host Hisham Wyne and international headliner Ali Al Sayed (as seen on OSN, MBC, BBC, Abu Dhabi TV, Al Hurra, Dubai One).
