Big Brothers of Rhode Island is excited to “roast” their Executive Director, Steve Kass, on Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 6:30pm at the Providence Marriott, 1 Orms Street, Providence, RI. Roastmaster Ron St. Pierre will host the evening while fellow roasters keep the laughs flowing all night long. The dais is full of well known comedians and friends of Steve including Dave “Father Misgivings” Kane, comedian Charlie Hall, 630WPRO’s Vincent “Buddy” Cianci, comedian Frank O’Donnell, NBC10’s Gene Valicenti, 94 HJY’s Steve MacDonald (“Jim Shorts”), comedian Patrick Austin, 630WPRO’s Matt Allen, Tony Bristol and Steve’s wife Deb Morais.
All proceeds benefit Big Brothers of Rhode Island so the organization can continue to help “Little Brothers” with one-on-one mentoring. “There is an epidemic of young boys in the Rhode Island area in need of a positive role model in their lives,” says Kass. “Eighty to eighty-five percent of inner city youths are born to single moms. With your generosity, we can continue to change the lives of these children.”
“This is a major fundraiser for Big Brothers of Rhode Island and the first of its kind for the organization,” said comedian Charlie Hall. “We will have lots of fun and laughs at the roast, at Steve’s expense of course. But the real reason to smile is in knowing that this event will help Big Brothers of Rhode Island’s mentoring program.”
Tickets are $75 each or you can purchase a table of 10 for $600. Ticket includes dinner and the show and can be purchased online at www.bigbrothersri.org. Special thanks to Arthur Robbins at the Providence Marriott (who is also a Big Brother), Cardi’s Furniture, D.A. Videography, ATR Treehouse and to all of the roasters for their help and support of this event.
