The Orange Lions Club is again hosting its annual comedy night fundraising event, “Comedy Under the Stars”, on Saturday August 17, 2024, at the picnic pavilion outside High Plains Community Center. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. This event features professional stand-up comedians and is suitable for mature audiences. The affair is a” bring-your-own beverage and snacks” event. Picnic table seating will be provided, but audience members may bring their own folding or concert chairs if desired. There will be a door prize and chances sold for wonderful baskets and prizes. 

Tickets for this charity fundraising event are $30 per person available for purchase from any Orange Lions Club member, or by calling Lions Ken or Marianne at 203-795-3906. The Comedy Under the Stars event has been a favorite of many patrons, because of the high quality of the comedic talent, and all proceeds go to the Lions’ charity and service events. In addition to our headliner Craig “the FIG” Figuereido, Orange native, Dave Sheehan, is returning for a fun evening along with two other comedians.

For more than seventy years the Orange Lions Club has supported many local charitable causes, including senior citizen and youth programs, our local food pantry, the fuel bank, annual children’s eye screenings, diabetes screenings, and college scholarships for Amity High School graduates. The Club also supports several foundations in Connecticut, throughout the Nation and the World that aid in preventing blindness and provide services to the blind and sight impaired. The Orange Lions also supports Fidelco Guide Dogs for the blind, children’s cancer research, disaster relief and much more. Lions Clubs International is the largest non-profit service organization in the World with over 1.4 million members in over 200 countries. 

Please join us on August 17th and we thank you in advance for your support!
