Comediennes to perform at Conner’s Cause for Children benefit Oct. 9


Conner’s Cause for Children will present “Fall Into Laughter,” the 5th Annual Conner’s Cause for Children benefit luncheon, boutique shopping and comedy performance.

“Fall into Laughter” will take place on Oct. 9 at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club in Solana Beach, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Stand-up comediennes Julie Kidd and Karen Rontowski of The Funniest Housewives of Orange County will host the festivities and perform a laugh-filled stand-up comedy show. Both comics have been doing comedy for over 20 years. Julie Kidd recently won the Hilarious Housewife contest on ABC’S “The View” and Karen Rontowski has appeared on The David Letterman Show and both ladies perform at such clubs as the Comedy Store, The Improv and other clubs around Southern California. Proceeds from the event will benefit San Diego County families burdened with the staggering financial costs of caring for a child with a life-threatening illness or injury.

In addition to a sumptuous lunch, “Fall into Laughter” will also present a unique boutique shopping experience to give guests an opportunity to revive their wardrobes or start their holiday shopping early. The silent auction will feature items including, a condo stay in Kauai, gourmet dinner for two by a professional chef, movie theater tickets, winery excursions, fine dining gift certificates and lavish spa services.

Founded in 1995 as a desire to honor the memory of a loved one, Conner Champ, Conner’s Cuase for Children has grown into a one-of-a-kind organization. “Conner’s Cause for Children is the only nonprofit organization in the San Diego region that offers direct family assistance for a variety of out-of-pocket costs related to any life-threatening illness of a child,” explains Carol Del Signore, executive director of Conner’s Cause. “For over 20 years, our small, locally-based organization has quickly responded to the urgent needs of area families so that they can focus on taking care of their sick children. Public support will dramatically increase the number of families we can reach and ensure that more children in our community have access to medical care and essential basic needs.”

Registration is available at for $60 per attendee.
