Gov. Bill Walker is the sporting subject of a comedy night to raise funds for the United Way of Tanana Valley in Fairbanks. A panel of local celebrities will be in attendance to roast the former governor on behalf of a good cause on Feb. 1 at the Westmark Hotel.
Alyeska Pipeline Service Company is the title sponsor, but organizations as big as Alaska Airlines and as small as the Fairbanks Funny Festival are also sponsoring.
“We’re ready for some side-splitting laughter!” the announcement reads at the organization’s website.
There’s plenty of material to work with. Things like, “If you like your full dividend, you can keep your full dividend.” We’re thinking out loud here.
But seriously, kudos to Gov. Walker for being such a good sport for a worthy cause.
