Tim Cavanagh and local celebs will highlight Comedy and Caring

GREENVILLE—The 13th annual Red Cross Darke County Chapter’s Night of Comedy and Caring will feature the fantastic comic stylings of Tim Cavanagh, who has taken his comedic songs and inventive stand-up to concert halls, corporations, college campuses and nightclubs across America and is a regular guest on “The Bob & Tom Show,” a nationally syndicated radio shows now heard in 150 markets. For two years, Tim did a weekly segment on the show called “The One Minute Song,” which spawned two more CDs released on Tim’s own label, Hits & Giggles Records. At a recent Hits & Giggles awards dinner, Tim was recognized by the label as their "Best Artist," an award he has won three out of the last four years. Even though he is the only act on the roster, a misty-eyed Cavanagh was quoted as saying, “It’s still a big thrill.”

Tim won’t be alone at this event either, with a little warm-up humor from local radio stars Dan “the man” Franks of Joy FM as the “Master of Ceremonies” time will simply hum along and Alex “Market Time” Mikos of WTGR will keep you amused until Cavanagh is ready to take the stage.

Also, this year, interactive fun will be provided by Louise Party Rentals, of Union City, who will be bringing a photo booth to the event. From 5:30-7:30 p.m. guests will be able to get an “old-fashioned” photo as souvenirs of their Night of Comedy and Caring.

If that isn’t enough, Paul Ackley, will be available pre-show as well to create quick caricatures of attending guests. Ackley started drawing for a local newspaper while he was in high school and has since earned four Associated Press Awards from the Ohio Associated Press. He also received a commendation from the Ohio House of Representatives recognizing his achievements as an artist. One of his most prized accomplishments is having one of his editorial cartoons being presented to Congressman John Boehner. The original drawing is currently displayed on the wall of Boehner’s office in Washington, DC. and now you, too, can have the opportunity to have him draw you as well.

To finish out the meal, a sweet treat will be delivered from new bakery artist, Betsy Ward, from A & B Coffee & Cake.

Throughout the evening, enjoy specialty drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, bid on silent auction items with everything from a family membership to the Y to a Family Fun Basket, or enter a drawing to win dinner out, fine jewelry and a slew of other prizes.
