Help children with cancer enjoy a ballgame

Comedy show fundraiser Mar. 20 in Denver

Children battling cancer are finding a momentary escape from the stress and worry with a trip to the ballpark.

Uncle Frank's Youth Cancer Baseball Tour sends children and their families to Major League Games.

Millions got to know Uncle Frank from his frequent appearances on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Frank Potenza was a former police officer who became a guest on his nephew's show.

He passed away in 2011 at the age of 77 and a fund was established in his name to help charities and groups in need of a helping hand.

The foundation is helping the Youth Cancer Baseball Tour expand to more ballparks.

Comedienne Jill Bryan, who is Kimmel's sister, is helping raise money for the cause on March 20 at the Comedy Works, 1226 15th St, Denver. 

Doors open at 7 p.m. show starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $15. All proceeds go to taking kids with cancer to Major League Baseball games.
