The SFMF would like to thank everyone for attending last night’s comedy show at PPAC. All of the comedians were in top form and regardless of the amount of money raised, it was a success. A room full of laughter is always a good thing. Any amount of money and awareness raised toward our ultimate goal is worth the time and effort.
We would like to thank Tom Stewart, Shane Snider, Mike Murray, Ace Aceto, Stephanie Peters, Don Jamieson, Jim Florentine, and Craig Gass for not only donating their time and putting heart and soul into their performances, but for giving up a paying gig on a Friday night, forcing family and friends to come out and buy tickets to see an act they have seen and heard ad nauseum, helping to promote the show over,and over, and OVER again, and in the case of the national performers, driving or flying for several hours just to be here to donate their talents and make people laugh.
Putting together an event like this cannot be done without the help of several people and we would be remiss if they were not mentioned here:
94 HJY for their unwavering support in promotions and sponsorship,
PPAC for donating the facility,
IATSE members that worked for free or at a VERY reduced rate last night,
Hampton Inn in Coventry for donating all rooms,
East Coast Screen Printing for Tshirts,
1150 Oak Bar & Grill and Henry Ottaviano for donation of catering for backstage,
The Rock Junction (Rick and Henry Ottaviano) for donating the Limo Ride and Champagne package for auction purposes,
Donovan Williams and Graphic Innovations for all printing services,
Dean Duhamel for all poster and Tshirt design work,
Cyn Knight for promotions/ marketing assistance,
and Scotty Dunbar for coming to sell his new CD single and donating all sales.
Thank you all again.We should have some totals in a few days, and although the sales were light with the weather being crazy at the last minute, we had a wonderful night. We are grateful for all of the support.
