Jermaine ‘Funnymaine’ Johnson, Wind Creek Hospitality announce partnership to benefit at-risk youth in Alabama

Comedian Jermaine “Funnymaine” Johnson and Wind Creek Hospitality announced last week a partnership aimed at benefitting particular youth in the Yellowhammer state.

The Funnymaine Foundation and Wind Creek plan to collaborate two events this summer that will benefit at-risk youth in Alabama. In addition to that, Wind Creek also plans to be the title sponsor for certain shows in Johnson’s upcoming spring comedy tour.

“I’ve always been a huge advocate for businesses in Alabama that are doing great work for and in the state,” Johnson said. “Since I have four shows in the state of Alabama on this year’s tour it was only right to partner with a great Alabama-based company like Wind Creek.”

“More importantly, I’m looking forward to working with at-risk youth here in Alabama alongside Wind Creek this summer,” Johnson added. “Having a successful company or a sold-out tour means nothing if our next generation of youth are not set up for success.”

Wind Creek also released a statement and shared their excitement for the partnership.

“We at Wind Creek could not be more pleased with the opportunity to support the Funnymaine Foundation in providing programs for young  Alabamians in need,” said Magi Williams, Wind Creek’s director of public relations. “We also look forward to the incredibly funny and entertaining Funnymaine events. This is truly a win for Alabama kids and for anyone lucky enough to secure a ticket to one of the shows.”

Johnson’s Off the Couch 2 Tour kicks off March 12 in Phoenix, Arizona, and will include more than 25 shows across the country. Wind Creek will be the official sponsor for Johnson’s shows in Huntsville, Montgomery, Opelika and Mobile. For more information, or to purchase tickets, go here.
