Just received an e-mail from my contact at the American Red Cross–Central Maryland Chapter, with the official total of donations raised at this year’s Shore Leave Comedy Roast of Robert Greenberger:
I want to thank everyone who came to the show and donated, including some of our performers, such as Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Glenn Hauman, Marco Palmieri, Dayton Ward, and Kevin Dilmore. (If I’m forgetting anyone, I apologize.)
I also want to thank the show’s ushers, who worked passing the donation cans through the audience to solicit donations during the show: Keith R.A. DeCandido, Wrenn Simms, Greg Cox, William Leisner, and Scott Pearson. These folks were just as big a part of the evening’s success as everyone else, and I tip my hat to them in gratitude.
As much as I sweated the show’s technical details, this was the part I really cared about, and I am proud of what we accomplished.
