Fundraising show approaches

The countdown is on to The Post Newspaper helping community groups fundraiser—The Dave Upfold comedy hypnotist show on 21 March at Pukekohe Town Hall.

If your organisation is raising money, the Dave Upfold show is an excellent addition. With a mix of comedy and music, the interactive, engaging performance is set to entertain, and also help your group raise funds.

Many might wonder whether the show is entertaining by having the participants running around clucking like chickens. The truth is that its not like that all, in fact the group of volunteers will probably end up having the most fun of anyone attending and are respectfully treated as true stars of the show.

Organiser Lynn Douglas says they once had a gentleman hypnotised who did the most unbelievable rendition of Michael Jackson, and the guy wasn’t even a person who liked to dance. He surprised not only himself, but wowed the audience with his slick dance moves.
“Certainly all participants feel great after the show and are quite glad that they participated,” said Lynn.

Dave Upfold has a real knack and has done many sell-out shows in the Franklin area over the past few years. With no two shows ever being the same Dave has been entertaining audiences around the world with his hypnosis comedy show for more than 20 successful years.

Dave believes that all who come to his shows laugh so much and feel so good that they may even walk away with a renewed sense of humanity, and generally a sore stomach from so much laughter.
“After the show is over, people often say they wish they had volunteered to come up on stage, realising how much fun it is and that I’m not going to get them to do anything that will embarrass them,” said Dave.

“Expect to have a great deal of fun, a bellyful of laughs and see your friends participate on stage. People who have been to my shows before will know what a great time is in store and those that have not yet been are in for a fantastic experience and a great surprise,” said Dave.
If you are raising money, it’s not too late! It’s a lot easier than holding a car wash, a bake sale, or sausage sizzle and a lot more fun! The Post does the work, you enjoy the show.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
