Candidates' Comedy Night

Improv at the Waterfront, McKeesport

Candidates' Comedy Night 2013 was another success.  Thanks to all who attended!!

 CCN 2013

Come.  Laugh.  Help Children. 

Candidates’ Comedy Night 2013 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 sang or danced or played a musical instrument. Candidates’ Comedy Night 2013 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.
