Comedy Night 2022
Our second annual Comedy Night Fundraiser was a huge hit and a ton of fun! We doubled our proceeds from last year to support our holiday toy drive that will deliver smiles to so many children living in social services residences. Heartfelt thanks to all for their generosity – donors, sponsors, the 300 guests who filled the room, comedians Colin Quinn, Tara Cannistraci, and Lulu, and master of ceremonies Margaret Lembo.
