Thanks to you, Comedy Night was a Huge Success!
Our 16th Annual Comedy Night on September 20th, was a huge success, raising vital funds for pets in need! A BIG thank you is due to all for attending, sponsoring, sharing social media posts, bringing guests, volunteering at the event and helping us to gather auction items. Without your efforts, the evening would not have reached the level of success that it did.
Current resident dogs that are available for adoption greeted more than 1,000 guests as they arrived and added to the flurry of activity from the moment that guests arrived until the final guest headed for their car. The Silent Auction enticed bidders while VIP guests enjoyed cocktails and delicious hors d'oeuvres. In the background, the Bill Setta Trio played a superb array of light jazz music and MC Gary Campbell of Go Country 105.1 FM kept folks smiling and raised excitement for the show.
As a moving reminder of the and success, the Pet Adoption Center's audience was shown a brief video featuring former cats, dogs, puppies and kittens who have found forever homes and a heartfelt message was delivered by Executive Director, Mary E. Sheets.
To close out an utterly delightful evening, Paula Poundstone graced the stage with her razor-sharp wit and spontaneity followed by a meet and greet. The record-breaking event was amazing and as the guests left the Riverside Municipal Auditorium there was already talk and excitement for our 17th Annual Comedy Night!
