Gig­gles for Harry

Get your tick­ets to Urzila Carl­son’s com­edy show at the Mata­mata Club and get gig­gling for a good cause.

Matamata Chronicle - - What’s On -

Danielle Hen­nessy ap­proached the co­me­dian through a Face­book mes­sage and within a day the South African born Urzila, who lives in Auck­land, had of­fered her ser­vices for free.

Danielle said she chose Urzila be­cause she fits with her and hus­band Paul’s vibe.

‘‘We like her work and she has done a lot for breast can­cer re­search,’’ Danielle said.

The couple en­joyed Urzila’s nat­u­ral, cheeky, straight up style of com­edy on Seven Days, Seven Days of Sport and Funny Girls.

Tick­ets to the Novem­ber 25 show at the Mata­mata Club, which in­cludes din­ner and desert and silent auc­tion, are $60 and are avail­able from the venue now.

Half of the ticket pro­ceeds will go to­wards Danielle and Paul’s son Harry.

The two-year-old was born with Tri­somy 21 (Down syn­drome) and be­cause of this has soft mus­cles and a raft of other health con­di­tions.

He also has a hole in his heart wall.

He has strug­gled with pneu­mo­nia and kid­ney re­flux.

The Hen­nessys have been fundrais­ing via Givealit­tle to try and make his home as dry and warm as pos­si­ble.

They had a free DVS ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem in­stalled ear­lier this year.

They also had some in­su­la­tion in­stalled by Pink Fit.

Danielle said their fundrais­ing fo­cus has shifted slightly to in­clude pre­ven­tive med­i­ca­tion at the mo­ment, as they learn more about con­di­tions that will af­fect Harry in the fu­ture.
