Comedian Uses Talents To Help Raise Money For Vets

Although this event is past, I wanted to share it, in order that readers would learn more about the AMVETS Club, very active in this area.

The “Laugh For Vets” comedy fundraiser was held on March 9, 2019, sponsored by AMVETS Club, 147 Alfred St., Biddeford, ME, helping to raise money for the VA Medical Center (TOGUS) in Augusta.

George Hamm, a comic, was the headliner, accompanied by other poets from surrounding areas who also offered to help.

Hamm (a Vet himself who served in the Marines) is an AMVETS member, and also a Biddeford resident; he said he was happy to donate his time to raise money for a cause he takes special in-assisting with needs of patients in the Mental Health Unit at the VA hospital at TOGUS.

The principal organizer for the event was Robin Delage and was assisted by Mike Daigle.
Another Improv continues this weekend: (“Spring Fling”)

Maine Rep and the American Chamber of Comedy have added a couple of shows this weekend. The ACC has a show with performances at 8:00 PM Friday, April 12 & 7, & at 9:15 PM for Saturday, April 13. The organizers, and co-founder Steve Burnette of the event are working with Biscuits & Company, to hold a special, spring chicken, dinner-theater package.

The theater used for this event is located at the Pepperell Mill, 40 Main St. downtown Biddeford.

For ticket info or to find out more, go to or call (207) 205-6201. Maine Repertory Theater encourages nonperishable food items for the Biddeford & Saco food pantries.  A great way for organizations & communities to help who’re going through tough times.
