OK, this has got to be one of the best fundraisers around—period. The Delray Library will host “Laugh with the Library, Chapter 8” on Friday, Jan. 31 at the Delray Beach Marriott. The comedian this year is Letterman and Leno regular Dennis Regan who will be introduced by one of our local faves, Paul Castronovo, of the long running “Paul & Young Ron Show” on BIG 105.9 FM. The opening act will be comedienne Angela Manfredi, an award-winning television and radio broadcaster.

For decades we’ve dragged ourselves to dreary black tie events and auctions and tastings and awards receptions; here’s a chance to laugh yourself silly and raise money for one of Delray’s shining institutions — its library. Hats off to the library for doing this every year, and to this year’s chairs, library board members Becky Walsh and Heidi Sargeant.

This casual night begins with cocktails and supper by the bite and then the real fun starts; we say don’t miss it! Tickets are $175; call 561/266-0799.
