Carnival benefit raises more than $12,000 for Kids in Distress
A Carnival Cruise Line event raised more than $12,000 for Kids in Distress of Broward and Palm Beach Counties, 20% more than last year's event.

The Fort Lauderdale Improv was transformed into Carnival’s Punchliner Comedy Club with appearances by comedians Jason Blanchard, Vince Morris, Pat Godwin and Thea Vidale. The event was sponsored by Carnival’s Global Contact Center and hosted by Eli Rodriguez, one of the company’s sales coaches, who is also a professional comedian.

The funds will be used to help Kids in Distress, a nationally accredited agency working for the prevention of child abuse, preservation of the family, and the treatment of abused and neglected children.

Carnival’s Punchliner Comedy Clubs presented by George Lopez are featured aboard all 24 of the line’s ships and stage more than 20,000 comedy shows annually.
