The Palms Casino Resort and famed comedian Sammy Shore present an all-star charity fundraiser entitled “Funny Bones” benefitting local dog rescue organizations on Sunday, January 31, 2010, at 3 p.m.
The Funny Bones comedy jam boasts an all-star cast emceed by the always impressive talents of Sammy Shore, founder of LA’s famed Comedy Store and opening act for Elvis Presley; Bobby Slayton, The Pitbull of Comedy; and George Wallace, The New Mr. Vegas. Supporting Sammy’s event is Pauly Shore, comedy star of television and film and an array of talented friends, including Lance Burton, Vinnie Favorito, Frankie Scinta, Jeff Hobson, Dean Napolitano, Manny Olivera, Pam Matteson, Kathleen Dunbar and Pete Barbutti.
The funds raised from this year’s comedy jam will help three local organizations: Golden Retriever Rescue Southern Nevada, Las Vegas Basset Rescue and The Las Vegas Weimaraner Club & Rescue. These non-profit, all-volunteer organizations will use the funds for veterinary care, boarding, training and sanctuary for abandoned dogs in the community.
Funny Bones is possible due to the dedicated people who believe in helping the local dog rescue community: Dr. Matthew Brooks, Suzanne Shore, show Producer and Director James D’Arrigo, Samantha Ratcliffe-D’Arrigo at Vegas Rock Dog, Jocelyn Arter, Kathleen Delaney and Arica Dorff at Petographique.
