I am posting this here. My good friend, Brian Fischler of Laugh for Sight is expanding their benefits to help dogs. Please refer to this press release below.
After 10 years of Laugh For Sight Benefits in New York City an interesting opportunity presented itself for a second benefit. We are partnering with the city and the Mayors Alliance For NYC Animals and Maria Milito from Q104.3 for the Inaugural Laugh For Sight For Dogs to be held on Monday, April 25th at Gotham Comedy Club. Legendary Comedian Robert Klein is on board along with Paul Mecurio the audience warm up Comedian at The Late Show with Steven Colbert, Stacey Prussman, Rich Aaronovitch, Allie Klein, and of course Nash and me. The evening will be Hosted by animal lover Maria Milito from Q104.3. Additionally we will be having a few celebrity presenters who will take the stage with one of the disabled dogs up for adoption. Legendary Actor Danny Aiello will be there along with a few surprises to be announced soon.
So what is Laugh For Sight For Dogs? Well, it is a night that will be filled with tons of laugher and a night that will be supporting Two amazing causes! We will be raising money and awareness about retinal degenerative eye diseases as well as raising money, awareness, and adoption opportunities for NYC’s most ignored, disabled dogs! Whether it is a blind dog or a dog missing a limb, these are not bad animals, just animals that landed in a bad situation.
The evening will start at 7pm with a cocktail hour, silent auction, and meet and greet with some of the dogs up for adoption. There will be a adoption van outside Gotham Comedy Club so even if you are thinking about rescuing a dog there will be people on site to answer any questions you may have. The Comedy Show will start at 830pm. Tickets are $50 plus a two drink min. and VIP Reserved Seating with an Open Bar are $150. Additionally Corporate Sponsorship Tables are available. Contact me directly if interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities.
