Chuckles, Chicken and Charity

Chuckles, Chicken & Charity is a fundraising dinner/comedy show that benefits the Wayne B. Smith Compassionate Care Fund.

That’s a mouthful, so let me tell you what that means and why the silly name fits.

CHUCKLES: Wayne B. Smith LOVED to tell jokes, so in his honor, we always celebrate his life with a night of laughs. We have a hilarious comedian, Rik “Barney Fife” Roberts, along with WVLK’s Jack Pattie who will entertain us on this casual, light-hearted evening!

CHICKEN: Wayne was known for his visits to folks, bringing a big bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken so we usually serve some type of chicken dish in his honor.

CHARITY: Proceeds from this fundraising event benefit The Wayne B. Smith Compassionate Care Fund which provides for the needs of residents and staff at Sayre Christian Village when they find themselves in times of financial crisis. Wayne was beyond generous to those in need.
