The Humboldt Community Memorial Hospital Foundation Founder’s Event on Jan. 18 will raise funds for a new ambulance for the hospital.

HUMBOLDT — Laughter and live music will be featured during an upcoming evening of entertainment that will help raise the money needed to buy a new ambulance for Humboldt County Memorial Hospital.

Bob Stromberg, who coauthored the theatrical show ”Triple Espresso (A Highly Caffeinated Comedy)” will generate the laughter at the 17th annual HCMH Foundation Founder’s Event on Jan. 18.

The live music will be provided by Chris and Micah, a Midwest based duo that performs pop and rock tunes.

The fundraiser will be held at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds Event Center.

It will begin at 6 p.m. with a social hour, meal and cash bar.

At 8 p.m., Stromberg will take the stage.

In addition to ”Triple Espresso (A Highly Caffeinated Comedy),” Stromberg is known for performing the solo theatrical act ”That Wonder Boy.”

While performing, he uses his hands and fingers to create shadows that help tell his stories and jokes.

Stromberg’s shows are profanity-free comedy suitable for all ages.

When he is done eliciting laughter from the audience, Chris and Micah will begin their performance.

The duo consists of Chris Ranallo and Micah Wagner from the band Decoy.

General admission tickets cost $50 per person. Reserved seating tickets cost $60 per person.

Businesses can become sponsors of the event. Sponsorships ranging from $250 to $2,500 are available.
