Candidates' Comedy Night

Improv at the Waterfront, Homestead

Thanks to all who joined us on Wednesday, August 13 for another evening of side-splitting comedy!

 Come.  Laugh.  Help Children. 

CCN 2014 logoCandidates’ Comedy Night 2014 once again brought political candidates for races of local interest in the spotlight for an evening of fun and fund-raising. Most candidates performed a stand-up routine. Others sing or dance or play a musical instrument. Candidates’ Comedy Night 2014 raised nearly $40,000 to support the Allegheny County Music Festival Fund (ACMFF). We are thankful for all the support from the local community to help children reach their full potential.

Photos of the evening are coming SOON!
