It’s Comedy Night Feb. 22 with Soroptimist

Service organization’s fundraiser to feature comic Susan Rice.

PORT ORCHARD — Soroptimist International of Port Orchard is sponsoring Comedy Night on Friday, Feb. 22, at the Clubhouse at McCormick Woods. Showtime is 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

The featured comedian is Susan Rice, who has been seen on cable television’s Comedy Central and was recently named “Portland’s Funniest Comic.”

The event is one of the organization’s primary fundraisers for the year with the goal of raising money for community service projects that include numerous educational scholarships, “hands-on” projects such as providing help for homeless women, and the Soroptimist signature project — the “Live Your Dream” award. It is a cash award given to women who are heads of households, are enrolled in college or technical programs, and in need of financial assistance.

Recent recipients are scheduled to attend the comedy event and will comment briefly on their situations.

SIPO members have worked closely with Port of Bremerton Commissioner Larry Stokes on past projects and he has again volunteered to demonstrate his legendary skills as an auctioneer during a brief live auction and “raise the paddle” segment. A 50/50 raffle and dessert auction also will be featured at the event.

Tickets are $20 each and may be purchased online at brownpapertickets.com or by calling 206-349-6986 or 903-952-9718. Tickets purchased at the door are $25 each. Tables of eight to 10 may be purchased for $160-$200. Guests wishing to have dinner may do so at the restaurant prior to the event.
