The El Rey Theatre will play host to the Wilshire Community Police Council’s (WCPC) annual fundraiser, providing a night of comedy with a “little jazz” thrown in on the side.

The benefit, on Thurs., Oct. 23 at 7 p.m., will benefit the police cadet programs and the Wilshire community police station.

Comedians scheduled to perform include Bill Devlin, Peggy Bartenetti, Tom Clark, Jamie Kaler and Jackie Kashian. The Collin McClanahan jazz band will lend its musical styling to the evening’s entertainment.

“The WCPC’s cadet program focuses on youth, ages 13 to 20, who are in good scholastic standing,” said Steve Rosenthal, WCPC president. The program places emphasis on discipline, leadership, academic excellence and life-skills. Cadets receive training in law enforcement principles, conflict resolution, physical fitness, cultural diversity and gang and narcotics prevention.

The WCPC is the primary funding source for these programs.
