ACU and Abilene Christian School are providing the community with a night of laughter as Tim Hawkins and alumnus Bob Smiley perform their comedy show Tim Hawkins Live in Moody Coliseum later this month.
Tim Hawkins Live will take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 28 in conjunction with Abilene Christian School’s annual fundraiser.
Samantha Adkins, a committee member for ACS’s auction, said the event will look a little different this year.
“Normally the event is held in November, but this year to go with the added element, the fundraiser was moved to February,” Adkins said. “This year the concert was added in place of the dinner.”
Kirk Wade, president of ACS, said the event will appeal to people of all ages.
“Abilene Christian School is excited to bring the community an event that the whole family can enjoy,” Wade said.
Jennifer Little, director of marketing at ACS, said having Bob Smiley back on campus was a great opportunity for ACS.
“I am very pleased that we were able to negotiate to include ACU alumnus Bob Smiley as a part of the concert,” Little said.
Smiley, who graduated ACU in 1994, said he looks forward to being back as well.
“I can finally return that library book that I forgot to return my senior year,” Smiley said. “I’m also looking forward to seeing the changes ACU has made around campus and just walking around the same paths that I walked years ago as a student wondering what God was going to do with my life.”
Little said she is confident this fundraiser will entertain ACU students as well.
“We feel it’s an excellent on-campus option for university students,” Little said. “Those that choose to come will not leave disappointed. It’s a fantastic show.”
