LA GRANDE — A night of fun and laughter will serve as a fundraiser to help build a youth center in Union County.

Eastern Oregon Youth for Christ is hosting comedian Bob Stromberg. The event is Friday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. in the La Grande High School auditorium, 708 K Ave. Early bird ticket prices are $15. After Oct. 15, the cost increases to $20.

With more than 30 years of yucking it up on stage, Stromberg’s family-friendly “Comedy with Character” show is described as “hilarious, clean comedy.” His act features a blend of stand-up comedy, stories and shtick. Stromberg presents physical comedy, audience participation and even hand shadows, which the London Metro described as “stunning.”

A faith-based outreach program for young people in the community, Youth for Christ’s mission is to share about Christ’s love, offer peer group activities and connect youths with caring adults. They offer everything from after-school programs, teen lunches and tutoring to counseling, games and activities. Eastern Oregon YFC has been serving Union County since 1988. The J House Youth Center will provide an opportunity for even greater outreach in the community.
