Rebuilding Together of Manchester to host comedy fundraiser

A non-profit group called Rebuilding Together has announced that they will host a comedy show to raise funds for their organization’s Manchester affiliate.

The event, scheduled for Oct. 20th at the Manchester Elks Lodge, will offer a night of family-friendly comedy and will showcase local comedians. The event will also feature raffles and auctions, which event organizers are still looking for sponsors and donations for.

The proceeds will go towards Rebuilding of Manchester, a volunteer organization that helps rehabilitate the houses of low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners. The organization has worked to restore over 1,300 homes to help improve living conditions for residents since 1992, according to the group’s website.

The Comedy benefit is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. There will be a cash bar available and attendees can bring their own snacks. 

“We are thrilled to be hosting our first fundraiser post COVID,” Molly Devanney, Rebuilding Together of Manchester’s Executive Director said. “We really think this is a way to bring people back together for a night of fun to help out their local neighbors in Manchester.”  

Rebuilding of Manchester is raising funds in preparation for next year’s National Rebuilding Day when the organization plans to make all the repairs to the homes of the program’s recipients. The next National Rebuilding Day is set for Saturday, April 29th.
