Homes for the Brave, Treehouse Comedy Productions, and Funny4Funds present a lively and memorable night out at the Third Annual “For Veterans By Veterans” Comedy Night, hosted at Vazzano’s Four Seasons on Friday, March 8th.

The “For Veterans By Veterans” Comedy Night features a buffet dinner, door prizes, 50/50 raffle, and a hilarious lineup of professional comics, all of whom are U.S. Military Veterans.

Proceeds raised from the event will fund programs and services that assist homeless Veterans from our community get back on their feet.

“Veterans working on behalf of other Veterans is central to our Comedy Night,” said Phillip Modesti, combat Veteran (US Marine Corps), HFTB Board Member, and Event Chair. "The event is unique in that the evening is not only an entertaining one but impactful as well."

Opening its doors in 2002, Homes for the Brave is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing safe housing, case management, vocational services, and life skills coaching to homeless individuals, primarily Veterans. Recently, programming has been expanded to include clinical services, open to both residents and visitors. Money raised from the Comedy Night will benefit HFTB’s offerings. To date, the organization has served over 1,250 individuals.

“I love what [Homes for the Brave] is doing,” said Jody Sloane, one of the comedians performing. “This cause is important to me. Shortly after discharge, I was homeless.”
