Firefighters’ comedy fundraiser canceled

The Allen Park Firefighters Local 1410 Comedy Night in Wyandotte that had been scheduled for Friday at Portofino, 3455 Biddle Ave., has been canceled due to lack of interest.

Organizers say the event last year helped the Allen Park Firefighters Charity Committee raise more than $20,000.

Proceeds would have supported the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Michigan Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation, Great Lakes Burn Camp, Toys for Tots, Adopt a Family, Karmanos Cancer 3-Day Walk, the High School Scholarship Program (which provides two $500 college/trade school scholarships) and private donations to six local families and individuals in need.
