Comedy pays for college

Posted on Mar 23, 2006 The problem with student fund-raisers is that no matter how noble the cause, car washes and bake sales can only get you so far. Jesus Ruvalcaba, an outreach specialist with CSUMB's Educational Talent Search who has worked to get high school students into college, came up with the idea for a comedy show but wasn't sure how to proceed. He contacted comedians online; they agreed to help. So did the Associated Students, who offered to fund the concert. A bona-fide student-run event came to life.
