UFP Spring 2017 Fundraiser, April 24
stand up against hunger

On April 24, once again we gathered at the Funny Bone Comedy Club to enjoy some comic relief with Willie Farrell and Dwayne Clark while we raised funds for the Urbandale Food Pantry. Farrell, Clark, and the Funny Bone venue and wait staff generously gave of their time, space, and talent for the event—our deepest thanks to all of them. And thanks to all of you who came out to enjoy the show and support the Pantry! Here are a couple of photos from the night:
