WHAT:     Night of Comedy to benefit The Buddy Hackett Singita Animal

          Singita is a private, non-profit, animal welfare organization,    
          founded by Sherry and Buddy Hackett, whose mission is to rescue
          abandoned and homeless companion animals.  It is their goal to  
          eliminate animal over-population through education, spaying and
          neutering, and the placement of healthy animals in the greater Los  
          Angeles area.

          Singita is in the process of building The Buddy Hackett Animal  
          Sanctuary to house and care for hundreds of abandoned animals.  The  
          facility will be a 12,000-square-foot, cage-free kennel for homeless  
          cats and dogs located on a private 22-acre site in the foothills of 
          the northeast San Fernando Valley.  It will be the largest no-kill   
          refuge for homeless, abused companion animals on the West Coast.  All 
          proceeds from the Night of Comedy will benefit The Buddy Hackett  
          Singita Animal Sanctuary
