The Light Foundation hosted its 5th Annual Fools’ Night Out at Showcase Live at Patriot Place on Thursday, March 29th, 2018. Matt Light MC’ed the event with some help from comedians Lenny Clarke and Tony V. They were also joined by local comics Christine Hurley, Dave Russo, Artie Januario, Jared Freid, Corey Rodrigues, Graig Murphy, Orlando Baxter and Jimmy Dunn. In between acts, Light showed the crowd footage of pranks that he has pulled from his personal video vault, including one he played on his friend Dave Carraro, star of National Geographic’s Wicked Tuna. A handful of current and former Patriots players were in attendance including Nate Solder, Rob Ninkovich and Sammy Morris.
Lead sponsor Rockport Mortgage along with sponsors J. Derenzo Company and Twelve Points Wealth, former teammates, local celebrities, and other generous attendees broke the Fools’ Night Out fundraising record - bringing in $100,000 for the Light Foundation and its life-changing programs. Auction items included an overnight stay at The Renaissance Hotel in Patriot Place, signed Patriots gear, tickets to Giggles Comedy Club, and exclusive access to Kenny Chesney’s sold-out show this summer.
The funds raised will support the Foundation’s mission help put at-risk youth from across the country on a path to success and will help fund student leadership conference programming based in New England.
Thanks to everyone for a great night of laughs, fun, and FUNdraising. The Light Foundation looks forward to seeing you next year!
Since Easter Sunday has claimed April Fool's Day... The Light Foundation is hosting its 5th Annual Fools’ Night Out on Thursday March 29th, 2018. Matt Light will host the event alongside popular local comedian Lenny Clarke at Showcase Live at Patriot Place. The evening is always a huge success not only in raising money for the non-profit, but also in entertaining guests with a hilarious lineup of local comedians. The 21+ crowd of former teammates, local celebrities, and other generous adults raised over $80,000 for the Light Foundation last year and we're reaching even higher this year.
In years past, our comedy fundraiser has included comedians, Steve Sweeney, Graig Murphy, Kim Eagan, Johnny Pizzi, Joe Yannetty, Dave Russo, Greg Howell, Mark Riley, and Mike McCarthy who gave amusing performances that had the audience in stitches.
The funds raised will support the Foundation’s mission help put at-risk youth from across the country on a path to success and will help fund new local student leadership conference programming based in New England.
We're looking forward to a great night of laughs and FUNdraising on Thursday, March 29th.
