Comedian hosts fundraising event

LA JOLLA — Comedian Marsha Starr, a traveling comic hypnotist, is taking Southern California by storm with her laugh-a-minute roller coaster ride of hypnotic fun all in an effort to support the locally based nonprofit organization, “Big Animals For Little Kids.” The organization helps to lighten the hearts of children and parents of children with severe illness and disease through entertainment.
The event is a great evening out for people who enjoy laughter and fun. “You don’t have to be part of the show, but you certainly can,” said Frank Fernicola, Big Animals founder. The evening is casual and a perfect evening to just enjoy something different and fun all while giving back to a great organization.
All proceeds raised from the event will help to fund programs for Big Animals for Little Kids. Volunteers with Big Animals for Little Kids regularly visit children in hospitals, homeless shelters and foster care facilities making a difference in the lives of hundreds if not thousands of children and their families each year.
The event is June 25 at the Neuroscience Institute Auditorium, 10640 John Jay Hopkins Drive. For more information, visit,, or call (619) 723-3142.
