On January 12th, the CIAO Relief Fund will host Comedy Relief: Rebuilding with Laughter. Some of NY’s top talent have signed on to keep us laughing!
These awesome comics have been seen on Comedy Central, Jimmy Fallon, FX, VH1, MTV, and the Chappelle’s Show… just to name a few. Our line-up will include:
Justin Williams – Beth Maria – Sam Morril – Sheba Mason – Jason Andors – Kenny Ortega – Dan St. Germain
After the show, the party will continue downstairs with music, raffles and awesome prizes. Get your drink on, get your laugh on, and enjoy the company of other people who can get down for a good cause.
Thank you to our generous donors who have already contributed to our raffle prize selection:
