Comedy Night Recap


August 2015

Dear Editor,

Comedy Night 2015 PhotoComedy Night at the Olde Vet’s Hall was a huge success thanks to our generous community. My heart is warmed by caring citizens who want to be a part of our mission to improve lives of people living in Dixon. Raising funds is vital to keeping Dixon Family Services’ doors open and there are many to thank for being supportive of those efforts.

Early in the planning stages local businesses and individuals Recology, CA Water, First Northern Bank, Dixon VFW, Jake Jackson and Gloria and Sigfredo Flores all pledged sponsorships of $500 or more to help the fundraising event get a good start. Other revenue came in from sponsorships of our placemats, ticket sales, auction/raffle and bake sale. The people who attended opened their wallets and gave freely.

The numbers have been crunched and the total profit is $8,000 for Dixon Family Services to augment our many programs. But even before money was counted we were calling Comedy Night 2015 a big success simply because everyone had a great time!!

All were happy and laughter was the theme of the night. We listened to suggestions and concerns after the Comedy Night in July 2014 and we chose a venue with air conditioning and comfortable seating. Our comedians were top notch and the humor was tasteful and VERY funny. Police Chief Jon Cox did a great job of keeping the crowd laughing as our Emcee for the night. Bud’s bar provided excellent service at reasonable prices.

The scrumptious tri-tip dinner was prepared and served by an effective team of Recology employees and Mike Hamilton. The meat was tender and delicious! Side dishes were also very yummy. The food service was swift and generous. People were encouraged to come back for seconds.

Everyone was a winner of the dessert sale and auction because families, friends, co-workers and even those who had just met shared the decadent desserts they won. By the time the comedy began everyone’s bellies were full.

Thanks to big-hearted donors there were so many raffle and auction prizes that calling out all the winners seemed endless. There are so many to thank for this successful Comedy Night and Dixon Family Services’ website www.dixonfamilyservices.org has the entire long list.


The hard work, dedication and comradery of the Comedy Night Team made it such a pleasure to be a part of from start to finish. We will begin work on the July 23, 2015 Comedy Night soon. Anyone that would like to join our committee is encouraged to call. Thank you.
