October 29, 2018

DEFIANCE, Ohio - Family comedian Will McDaniel will perform Saturday, Nov. 3, in Schomburg Auditorium on the Defiance College campus. This 6:30 p.m. event is a fund-raiser for the Pay It Forward student-led philanthropy project.

Will McDaniel is a seasoned comic, bringing clean, family-friendly laughter to audiences for more than 10 years. He has traveled across the country, sharing his twist on everything from family, friends, fun, to faith.

Each year the Defiance College Social Work Macro Practice class conducts a semester-long project that directly impacts community needs by awarding financial assistance in the form of a grant to a Northwest Ohio agency.

Within the course, students complete community assessments, fundraise, and collectively identify a community need.

All proceeds raised from the Nov. 3 concert will go to the grant that will be presented to a community agency in need. 

Tickets for Will McDaniel’s appearance are $5 for Defiance College students, $8 for adults, $20 for a family four pack, $25 for a family four pack and photo with Will McDaniel. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online.
