Because underwear is a necessity not a luxury.
Save the Date! You will not want to miss this year’s “Hilarity for Charity” event, a fundraiser to benefit The Undies Project, that will take place on Saturday, September 10th at 7pm at FISH Church aka First Presbyterian Church of Stamford. The mission of The Undies Project is to provide new underwear to men, women and children in need to improve their lives. The Undies Project started helping one organization back in 2015 and is now supporting 41 nonprofits, providing them with something so basic but extremely necessary.
This seventh annual Fundraiser event will be bigger and better than ever. We are planning a special night with comedian Christine Hurley who is known as the “Queen of Boston Comedy!” Married to her high school sweetheart (Jimmy Hurley) and raising five kids, Christine is never at a loss for words and comedic content of “everyday life!” She has appeared on Nick-At-Nite “Search for America’s Funniest Mom,” Season 9 of the Food Network’s “Great Food Truck Race” and many local television shows in the Boston market.
Christine performs regularly at the Tropicana in Las Vegas, Aruba and Atlantic City venues! Christine Hurley is one of the most sought after stand up comedians performing at every club, fundraisers and corporate events in New England.
Kim Berns will bring extra flair and comedy to Hilarity for Charity this year as emcee for the evening. Kim is a radio host and podcast host of “What’s the Story?”and “Cook and Comic” on I-Tunes and Spotify. She is a stand-up comic in NYC and produces, writes and emcees various charity events throughout the country.
You can expect to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and desserts by Aux Délices, a magnificent silent auction and the opportunity to support our cause during the paddle raise. Back by popular demand is photographer Olivier Kpognon of O & Co Media.
“Hilarity for Charity” is generously sponsored by AMWINS; Aux Délices; First County Bank; Greenwich Sentinel and Friends of The Undies Project. Many local businesses and individuals have already donated items for the silent auction and guests can be sure to take home some amazing items.
Funds raised at “Hilarity for Charity” will go towards purchasing new underwear to donate to the 41 organizations that The Undies Project supports.
Don’t miss the opportunity to Laugh for a Cause and help make a difference in the lives of others. Tickets are $95 and will go on sale Monday, August 1st at undiesproject22.givesmart.com.
