Recent Event: Comedy for a Cause

Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood Young Leaders hosted its first Comedy for a Cause fundraiser on November 8 at The Water Works Lounge in Albany.

About 50 guests, including many new faces, packed the house to see Albany's funniest comedians and to support our area's leader in reproductive health.

Hosted by Jennifer McMullen, the event featured six local comics, including the hilarious Jon Tenace, former UHPP Peer Educator. Jon spoke about his experience in high school as a member of the S.T.A.R.S. program (Seriously Talking About Responsible Sex). Peer Educators are trained by UHPP education staff on sexual health and responsibility and work closely with other teens to promote healthy sexuality.

Many thanks to everyone who came out the show! The Water Works Lounge generously provided the space for attendees to enjoy a wonderful evening.   Jennifer McMullen, Frank Gentile, Shawn Gillie, Brendan Joseph, William Hughes, Wanda Luv and Jon Tenace had the crowd roaring with laughs all night! We're especially grateful for the support of the event's sponsor, Albany Law School Dean Penny Andrews, and to our 2013 PPYL Presenting Sponsor, Albany Medical Center.
