An annual tradition is back this year with the 10th Annual Comedy Night and Auction hosted by Community Living North Grenville. The event is used as a fundraiser for the local organization, which offers opportunities for personal growth, community inclusion and empowerment to people with developmental disabilities, and their families. 

Sandra Summers, the Executive Director of Community Living North Grenville, explained that the funds raised help support the local people that they serve, including needs such as equipment, transportation, furniture, technology, and other things that could benefit them. “Given that we haven’t had a base budget increase in several years, and with the high costs of gas, food, etc., our operating budget has less dollars for these types of things,” Sandra added. 

The Annual Comedy Nights were put on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic, as were most familiar social events to prevent the spread of the virus. As with most of these events, the Comedy Night is back this year in a triumphant return to near “normal” life. 

The Comedy Night and Auction will take place on Saturday, April 22, 202 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. Tickets, on sale at the CLNG office, are $50 per person or buy a table for 8 at $350. Cocktail hour starts at 6:30 PM for you to enjoy appetizing hors d’oeuvres and finger foods. Hunter McCaig with Rideau Auctions Inc. will engage everyone in an active and fun auction to raise funds for CLNG. Great items donated by our local businesses will be available to bid on at the silent auction tables. You will be entertained by hilarious Comedians from YukYuk’s. Dianne Skoll, Michael Lifshitz, Rory Gardner and Tavis Maplesden will captivate you with their stories and bring tears to your eyes from laughing.

Sandra is thanking sponsors: Jansen Law, Atel Air, McDougall Brown Insurance Brokers, Hulse Playfair & McGarry Funeral Homes, D.R. Howell Electric, Solution One Financial, Walker & Associates. We hugely appreciate your support.

Buy your tickets early as this is always a sold-out event. See you there.
