Laugh For Sight 5 NYC 9/20/10 and The Inaugural LFS L.A. 11/9/10 Announced!!

Greetings all,

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I have been talking about some big announcements coming about some things I have been involved with, and Laugh For Sight. Well, here is the first of many new exciting announcements, Laugh For Sight is expanding to Los Angeles!! Oh yeah, and we are also in serious talks, and close to announcing a Laugh For Sight South Beach for December 2010. So you can see, the Nashster and I have been a little busy.

Laugh For Sight 5 is set for Monday, September 20, 2010 at the World Famous Gotham Comedy Club. Legendary Comedian Robert Klein will be returning, and one of the funniest woman in comedy, Jessica Kirson will be making her first appearance at Laugh For Sight. More of the lineup will be announced in the coming weeks, along with the start times of the silent auction and comedy show.

We are very excited to announce our Inaugural Laugh For Sight L.A. to be held on November 9m 2010 at the Melrose Improv in Hollywood, CA. Expanding to L.A. was a goal from the very beginning of Laugh For Sight, and we are very excited to announce Alonzo Bodden as our first L.A. comedian to sign on for the benefit. We will be announcing more detials about this benefit throughout the summer,

With Laugh For Sight’s expansion comes new partnerships. We have partnered with Fight For Sight, a 46 year old organization which funds scientists who are in the beginning of their careers, and working in the filed of curing visual diseases. We are very excited to be working with Fight For Sight. We have also partnered with Optelec’s VisionZone, the global leader in the manufacturing and distribution of technological tools for the visually impaired. We will again be donating proceeds from Laugh For Sight to Guiding Eyes For the Blind, and we are quite hopefully that with our new partnerships we will be able to significantly raise more money and more awareness on a national level.

To learn more about Laugh For Sight, please visit our website at http://www.laughforsight.com. The site will be under going a major update in the coming weeks, and if you would like to get involved with Laugh For Sight please send an email to info@laughforsight.com. We are always open to new ideas and suggestions, and always looking for people to help with corporate sponsorships and donations.

And not to worry, Nash will be headlining all the benefits!

    VERY EXCITING NEWS!!! Glad you can finally share with everyone. It certainly has been an interesting year. Nash didn’t realize he would get a whole new career when he teamed with you. What a lucky fella.

  2. blindgator Says:

    Yes, Nash sure doesn’t live the typical guide dog life. He was even invited back to the BBQ this weekend where he jumped in the pool in L.A. Unfortunately, we are in NYC, so no swimming for him this weekend.

  3. Robbin Says:

    Very exciting. Congratulations!! Okay, so Monday nights are our GEB puppy class. If I bail on class and drive down to NYC to come to this instead, can I bring my pup on program? I’m sure it would be a great training adventure for her. Maybe Nash would like to meet a cute little German girl. *grin* I just want to make sure it won’t make Nash all goofy up on stage if she’s in the audience!

  4. blindgator Says:

    Glad your excited, and I would never want to say no to you bringing your trainee dog, but am not sure about the legal situation and how advisable it is to have them at this crowded of an event. I would to defer to what Guiding Eyes and your puppy raising region thought. If they think it is ok, then we would love to have em there.

  5. Robbin Says:

    Thanks! Legally the pups are allowed to go anywhere that guide dogs are. Practically (and politely :-), we still ask as we are ambassadors as well as raisers. I wanted to check with you first so we didn’t distract poor Nash on stage. By then she will be only a few months from returning for training so I’m sure the crowds won’t be an issue. I’ll have to see as the time gets closer but it sounds like a fun outing, and to make it even better, maybe I can volunteer at the GEB puppy kennels during the day on Monday.

  6. blindgator Says:

    Hey Robbin, It sounds fine then, I just wasn’t sure what the rules were for dogs in training. GEB will most likely again be at Laugh For Sight, and will probably have a few ot their puppies there. It is a great event, and lots of fun, as I am sure the contingent that came down here last year mentioned.
