The 15th annual Amy Wilkerson Memorial spaghetti dinner fundraiser is today from 5 to 7 p.m. at Knights of Columbus, 800 W. Frontview.

The fundraiser is held in honor of Amy Wilkerson who was diagnosed in 1997 with Ewing’s sarcoma.

Ewing's sarcoma is a type of bone cancer usually found in children and young adults.

The spaghetti fundraiser is based on Wilkerson's favorite meal according to her father.

Hosted by the Kiwanis Club, proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards helping families that have children with devastating illnesses.

According to the club, the memorial fundraiser has raised more than $120,000 that have gone to 136 families.

4 Tim Hawkins comedy

The comedy of Tim Hawkins comes to United Wireless Arena Sunday starting at 6 p.m.

Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com, unitedwirelessarena.com or at the door and range from $23-$59.

According to Hawkins' website, he has been establishing himself as one of the most in-demand comedians in the country, with 300 million video views online and more than 100 sold-out concerts every year.

Hawkins' gut-busting comedy show entertains the entire family while doubling down on the funny, a daunting task in an age where the obscene has become routine.

His act is one part gifted, two parts twisted - the only certainty being his on-the-nose observations that expose the ridiculousness of daily life while marveling in its hilarity.

The perils of marriage, homeschooling, and growing up in the midwest may not exemplify the rock star life, but they make for really good punchlines.
