NFAWL Fourth Annual Comedy Night at Vail-Leavitt Music Hall

April 1, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$40 – $62.50

The North Fork Animal Welfare League will present its Fourth Annual Comedy Night, taking place in downtown Riverhead at the Vail-Leavitt Music Hall, located at 18 Peconic Avenue, Riverhead NY, on April 1st , 2017. Produced by LaughNYC, featured performers are J.J Boyd, Paul Corrigan, Mike Keegan, and Hilary Schwartz.

The League is very proud to bring this event to the beautiful, historic district in downtown Riverhead with all proceeds to benefit the creation of a brand new shelter for the needy and homeless animals of Riverhead Town.

“North Fork Animal Welfare League has done a wonderful job to create a warm and inviting animal shelter for the Town of Riverhead,” said Riverhead Supervisor Sean Walter, “Now that the Town has identified municipal property that is better suited for a shelter, NFAWL will still need financial support to create a top-notch facility for homeless pets in the Town of Riverhead.”

Sean Walter, Riverhead Town Supervisor

The Riverhead Town Shelter, which has been under the management of North Fork Animal Welfare League since early 2013, is a decades old building in great disrepair, located next to a garbage dump and waste processing plant. Sadly, the shelter is poorly lit and ventilated, and lacks sufficient space for the animals in our care, as well as for staff, volunteers and visitors. Even with the upgrades and repairs that The League has made, the facility will never meet our standards for the animals or the residents of the Town of Riverhead.

The new Riverhead Town Shelter will be a model shelter, with an energy efficient design that is bright, airy and accommodating for the animals in our care as well as the surrounding community. The new shelter will be clean, spacious and state-of-the-art, with indoor and outdoor areas for dogs and cats. Areas for animal intake, family bonding, humane education, storage and administration will make the space more functional.
