Comedian Bobby Collins will be performing at the Sugarloaf Performing Arts Center next Saturday night, Oct. 19, for the benefit of the Warwick Valley Humane Society.

The Orange Motorsports and Entertainment Company is hosting the event sponsored by WTBQ Radio. Tickets are $30.

Collins, who first worked at Catch a Rising Star Comedy Club in New York City, has also appeared in more than 200 live standup performances, numerous television shows and movies, including the 2010 documentary film "I Am Comic."

The Warwick Valley Humane Society, Inc. is a not for profit corporation. Founded in 1954, it’s mission is to provide a clean, comfortable safe haven for lost, abandoned, unwanted, abused and neglected animals and to properly care for them with medical attention to the injured and ill until these animals are reunited with their families, adopted or appropriately released.

“Please join us for this special evening as the profits will all go the Warwick Valley Humane Society to help them build their new facility,” said WTBQ Station Manager Taylor Sterling. “There is absolutely no more room at the inn.”

She referred to the fact that the current conditions at the Humane Society’s animal shelter reflect the dire need to raise the much needed funds for a new shelter.

“This,” said Taylor, “is an evening of comedy and fun, a live auction, food and beverage. Bring the family and bring your friends to the Sugarloaf Performing Arts Center. Support your local shelter, save innocent lives and enjoy an evening of good ole fashioned laughter.”
