Are you looking for a way to support the Thompson Road Regional Dog Park? If so, go to a comedy show.
On Sunday, Oct. 13, Legend’s Bar & Grill will host the “Laugh Your Tail Off” comedy fundraiser from 5 to 8 p.m., with all proceeds going to the dog park.
Keri Kostich, dog park committee member, said, “We’ve wanted to do a comedy fundraiser for some time, but had to put the idea on hold as our committee member numbers dwindled. This year, we’ve had several individuals commit their time and energy to helping the park. ‘Laugh Your Tail Off’ is just one of several events that we hope to schedule.”
Host Matt Bach will entertain the audience before introducing four other comedians, including Kathy Ryan, Marv Barnett, Billy Reno and Teena Green. Attendees can participate in a silent auction, drawings, and a 50/50 raffle.
Tickets are $30. The cost includes pizza, salad, bread sticks and pop. Tickets can be purchased at eventbrite.com. The link can be found on the Thompson Road Regional Dog Park Facebook page.
“Legend’s banquet room holds 50 and seemed like the perfect atmosphere for a comedy show. Our host, Matt Bach, used his contacts to schedule a hilarious lineup. All five comedians are donating their time,” Kostich said. “Area businesses and park supporters have generously donated items for the fundraiser and we are considering working with Prestige Authentics for the silent auction.”
The money will help fund a donor recognition sign at the park on Thompson Road, as well as more waste stations.
“The park operates on a tight budget, but we are determined to work to raise the funds needed for these park enhancements,” she said.
