Comedy night hopes to raise money and laughs


BEACON FALLS — The Laurel Ledge Elementary School PTO is looking to raise some money with a little laughter.

The PTO is sponsoring “A Night of Comedy with Dave Reilly” on Oct. 14 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Woodland Regional High School. The show is appropriate for ages 16 and up.

The PTO will also be offering a Parents Night Out program for parents who want to attend the show and need someone to watch their children.

A silent auction will be held prior to the show from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. All items must be paid for, in cash or check only, and picked up at the conclusion of the show.

All of the proceeds from the event will be used to buy books for the classrooms and more specifically to support the Readers’ Workshop Curriculum. The program requires that students have access to six to eight books each week in their classroom and for take-home reading assignments.

Tickets for the comedy show are $20. For more information or tickets, e-mail
