Variety show tonight to benefit Aurora shooting victims

A number of local artists will come together Sunday night for the "Assistance for Aurora" variety show. The program will be held the Beowulf Alley Theatre in downtown Tucson. There will be 13 artists who will perform different acts ranging from music to comedy.

All of the artists are performing for free. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the "New Venture Fund'. The fund benefits the community and families of the July 20th Aurora shooting. 

One of those killed was Alex Teves, a University of Arizona graduate who had gone to Colorado to continue his studies.  He is credited with risking his own life to shield his girlfriend from gunfire.  Teves was one of 12 murdered in the Aurora theater shooting during a midnight show of the Dark Knight Rises.

The doors open at 6:45pm and the show starts at 7:00pm. There is a suggested $10 donation to help the fund.  To help with the event you can call the theater at 520-882-0555 or e-mail them, theatre@beowulfalley.org
