Mike MacDonald fundraisers tonight

Third Beat has been taking a little pre-summer breather, but we’re back with an urgent piece of housekeeping for readers in Canada.

Mike MacDonald is one of this country’s favorite homegrown comedic talents, and his recent health struggles have prompted a series of fundraisers, the bulk of which are happening tonight (Thursday, June 21). Yuk Yuk’s clubs and independent venues across the country are raising money for Mike’s healthcare costs and raising awareness of his need for a new liver.

For more information on how you can help Mike, please check out the Facebook event page.
