For the past five years, Paul has hosted this fundraiser for different local charities and nonprofit organizations, and this year’s local charity is the Orange County chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Paul’s area of expertise ranges from coaching sales teams and women in leadership to taking the stage as an actress and as a comedian. Paul is also a dedicated member of the board of directors for Alzheimer’s Association, southern Orange County chapter.
Comics Unzipped will feature a wine and cheese reception for ticket holders at 7 p.m., sponsored by local French- and Italian-inspired restaurant Maison. The standup event will begin at 8 p.m., leading up to the headliner, Cash Levy. Levy is a nationally recognized comedian, having been featured on Comedy Central, and has performed at the world-famous Laugh Factory.
The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. According to the Alzheimer’s organization website, approximately 10 percent of individuals 65 and older have Alzheimer’s dementia, and it’s the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.
The proceeds of Comics Unzipped go toward the Alzheimer’s Association and supporting their mission to eliminate Alzheimer’s through research and advancement. For more information or to make a donation to Alzheimer’s Association, please visit Eventbrite.com.
