The Battlefords Empty Stocking Fund was originally started by radio station CJNB in the 1950's to solicit goods, services and monetary donations for the purpose of distributing food and gift hampers to needy families in the Battlefords during the Christmas season. They continue to carry on this tradition as a non-profit, registered charity devoted to the Christmas campaign and to operating a year-round community food bank under the name Battlefords District Food and Resource Centre.
The Human Condition Comedy Tour will be a ground breaking and historic journey. Three comedians will be traveling all across this great country to lift spirits and raise money for several different local charities and causes with the support of their sponsors, friends, families and fanbase. This will be a monumental tour. "We wanted to put on a tour that represents human connection amongst anything. Regardless of our differences it's always beautiful to be able to find a common cause that brings everyone together." The Tour consists of three comedians:
Shawn Gramiak: For almost 20 years, Shawn Gramiak has been a comedian, educator, writer, entrepreneur and award-winning public speaker and podcaster. He’s much more than just a hot blond with a great set of wits!
Scott Porteous: In the 16 years that Scott has been performing comedy he's been able to perform all over the U.S & Canada sharing his style of humour with several different audiences. He's performed at The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and can be heard on Sirius XM.
Nadine Hunt: Nadine has been credited as an amazing story teller. Her ability to draw you in with her wit and charm has captivated and entertained audiences from all over. She's not only a great comedian, she's also a writer, an actor and most importantly a mom.
