Comedy fundraiser for NP Wrestling Boosters is Friday

NORTH PROVIDENCE – The North Providence Wrestling Boosters Association is hosting a comedy show to raise funds for the North Providence High wrestling team on Friday night at the Knights of Columbus Hall on 15 Bassett St.

The doors will open at 6 p.m., and the show will start at 7 p.m. The show is for adults over the age of 18, and a cash bar will be available for ages 21 and older. Tickets are $20 per person, and there will also be a raffle featuring dozens of items.

Appearing at the event will be Funny 4 Funds, a comedy troupe that helps local organizations raise funds by providing comedians from around New England for a night of entertainment.

Typically, all the funds raised will be donated to help cover the cost of needed items, such as equipment, training aids, lunches for the wrestlers to bring with them to tournaments, transportation, and other needs not included in the high school athletic budget. However, this year, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the family of one of the team’s wrestlers who is battling an illness.

Tickets are available at the door or by contacting Ken Amoriggi at or 401-722-3777.
