Stand up (comedy) for animals
Amber Moonlit Night funny fundraiser returns

11/10/16

 Laughter is the best medicine for people and animals at the eighth annual Amber Moonlit Night gala and fundraiser.

Hundreds of cats and dogs at the Salem Animal Rescue League will benefit from the event, being held on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 6 to 11 p.m., at the Castleton in Windham and featuring food, prizes and stand-up comedy.
This year features New Hampshire resident Jimmy Dunn, who will take the stage at 8:30 p.m., and Stephen Bjork about an hour later, at 9:30 p.m.
Jimmy Dunn grew up in Beverly, Mass., and, in addition to performing stand-up for corporate audiences and at clubs and theaters, is an actor best known for his role as Sean McCarthy in the CBS sitcom The McCarthys.
Stephen Bjork is a Boston-based comedian who regularly performs at several clubs across the country and has more recently turned his focus to venues in New England. He specializes in observational comic routines from everyday life situations.
Former WZID radio personality Mike Morin, who served as last year’s event host, will be returning to Amber Moonlit Night this year. Morin is also an author and regular humor columnist for New Hampshire Magazine.
Dinner will be served at 7 p.m. with the Castleton handling all of the food.
“We’ll be having lemon chicken and chicken broccoli alfredo options, and there will also be a vegetarian menu. … We will have a cash bar available too,” said Kristie Nardini, SARL’s director of development.
Several items will be up for auction during this time, including health and wellness packages, beauty-related items, vacation packages and sports memorabilia.
“We try to always have enough that will appeal to different crowds,” Nardini said, “so we’ll have tickets for a trip to Disney World, gift certificates for the Palace Theatre … and we’ll have a signed glove from [boxer] Micky Ward.”
A feature of Amber Moonlit Night for the past several years, the Fund-a-Need presentation will also be returning. Nardini said funds from this year’s event will specifically go toward medical expenses for the close to 800 cats and dogs the League adopts out each year.
“One hundred percent of our animals are spayed or neutered, and we rely largely on fundraising to be able to take care of the animals we adopt,” she said.
