The Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group is at the halfway mark for reaching their goal of filling the seats for their upcoming comedy dinner fundraiser.

Laughs for Leathernecks, set for Monday, Sept. 15 at the Irvine Improv, 31 Fortune Drive Ste. 216 in the Irvine Spectrum, will include an evening of comedy with dinner, door prizes and a silent auction to benefit the 5th Marines.

The comic lineup includes Rita Rudner, James P. Connolly, Fritz Coleman, Laura Hayden and Tom Riehl.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 per person and the Support Group is asking that attendees consider making a donation via their secure PayPal link to sponsor tickets for a Marine and their spouse to attend.

Proceeds from this event will be used to provide support and outreach to Marines and their families left behind during their upcoming deployment to the Middle East.

The Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group Board is comprised of citizens who reside in the Dana Point and are willing to devote their time and talent to achieve goals that will benefit active duty 5th Marine Regiment personnel and their families.

Those interested in joining the Support Group as a “Friend of 5th ,” should fill out the membership form at the website below or call Pete Hammer at 949.378.7984 for more information.
