Chicago, IL, April 23, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- The online Zoom event was a huge success (link below) raising money towards Owen’s Go Fund Me goal of $20,000. It brought a night of fun, games, laughter, and an up-close and personal night with the featured Chicago comedians of the SMILES FOR MILES documentary.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNdQ3S82iro
Originally scheduled for a comedy benefit show at local restaurant Chicago Street Pub in downtown Joliet, comedians DeeDee The Funny Girl, Logan Nielsen, Brooks Sullivan, and Ben Hamilton converted the event to a virtual setting, citing "show must go on!" They did not let COVID-19 stop them from doing their show to benefit Owen Buell and his family.
Owen Buell was diagnosed with neuroblastoma earlier this year, a cancer which affects the sympathetic nervous system in children. Along with this diagnosis, Owen’s parents, Valerie Mitchell and Brian Buell, are even more worried about him catching COVID-19, while fighting his diagnosis of neuroblastoma. Owen is definitely a real trooper going through these battles.

DeeDee, Logan, Brooks, and Ben would like to say a huge Thank You to all who participated. If you missed the event, but still want to donate, please go to Owen’s Go Fund Me page (link below). Every little bit helps.https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-for-baby-owen-and-his-family
