THANK YOU to all who supported our Live, Laugh, Give Comedy Night, featuring nationally acclaimed comedian, Gary Gulman! It was a come as you are, casual evening of fun, food and philanthropy for the sold out crowd of 275 guests who attended. Hats off to our sponsors, community parters, donors, volunteers, committee members and JFS staff, especially our Event Co-Chairs, Suzy Catenazzo and Andrea Cronson, who along with the guidance and leadership of Susan Meyer, pulled off one heck of an evening!
With the ballroom set up as a comedy club, Gary Gulman, one of only a handful of stand-up comics to perform on every late-night TV talk show, took the stage. Attendees relaxed and laughed at his jokes and stories as his one-liners truly hit home. He entertained the crowd for over an hour, posed for photos and engaged in conversation after the show. Wow!
Pre-receptions, a live auction, raffle prize package drawings, a very moving call to the heart and a non-stop hilariously funny Comedy Show turned out to be a treat for all.
