Bullying, child abuse and teen dating violence are no laughing matter. Thankfully, the talented staff and actors of RESPECT have an engaging and interactive way to help keep our youth safe and informed. Join them for a night of comedy for a cause on July 11th and take a stand against the abusive relationship dynamics our children may face. Monies raised directly support RESPECT programming.
The night will start with a silent auction, dinner buffet, and cash bar, then a performance from the RESPECT actor-educators, as well as a comedy show with comedian John Bush who has performed stand-up comedy on HBO, Comedy Central, as well as sketches on Late Night with Conan O’Brien in addition to his many other credits.
Dr. Patricia Newman stops by the "Live & Local" studios to chat with Mike Hogan about the program, the event, and how the kids get the chance to better their lives.
