Once again, as I have done over the last few years, here is some info courtesy of Brian Fischler about this year’s Laugh for Sight event.
Please join us for the 9th annual Laugh For Sight NYC on Monday, October 27th at Gotham Comedy Club. This year’s All star Laugh For Sight NYC will be Hosted by Craig Carton from the Nationally Syndicated Boomer & Carton hit morning show and feature Legendary Comedian Robert Klein, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Brian Fischler with his guide dog Nash, and more Surprise Guests!
Laugh For Sight raises awareness about retinal degenerative eye diseases and also helps to raise the much needed funds for gene therapy research being done at the Scheie Eye Institute at the University of Pennsylvania. Along with the comedy show there is a silent auction featuring luxury jewelry donated courtesy of Susan Michel and friends, tickets to late night television shows, and sports memorabilia. The Silent Auction will kick off at 7PM followed by the comedy show at 830PM. Gotham Comedy Club is located at 208 West 23rd St., NYC, NY. Tickets can be purchased by going to www.gothamcomedyclub.com and clicking on October 27th, by calling 212-367-9000, or clicking directly on this linkhttp://gothamcomedyclub.com/event.cfm?id=341644&cart
Corporate Table and donations for the silent auction are still being accepted and you can contact Brian Fischler at 718-480-3566 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and to learn more about Laugh For Sight please visit www.laughforsight.com, and follow them on Twitter @LaughForSight.
Additionally if you can not make it to this year’s benefit, you can still help support Laugh For Sight NYC by sharing the attached ad for this year’s benefit on your social networks. Please help us get the word out there, as gene therapy research is at a critical juncture where people who have been blind their entire life are getting close to receive the gift of site, and people like me who went blind later in life have a realistic chance of having their vision restore, so taking the few seconds to share this add is greatly appreciated.
Furthermore if you would like to make a tax deductible donation to Laugh For Sight, you can do so through the website at www.laughforsight.com and click the donate button.
