Tickets are tax deductible• Tickets are available online at www.fansplash.org, or in person at Lucia's or at BookEnds. Joe has proven to be one of show businesses brightest lights. He left his mark on Saturday Night Live, and the nation, thanks to his wide range of hilarious original characters and celebrity impersonations, from The Sports Guy and Doug Whiner to David Letterman and, of course, Frank Sinatra. His work on SNL naturally led to Hollywood, and starring roles in such smash hits as Wise Guys and Johnny Danger- ously. Joe has also recently won acclaim for his dramatic guest-starring roles on the NBC drama, Law and Order• Although his unique tal- ents are in constant demand from show business quar- ters, Joe devotes an extraor- dinary amount of time to non-profit and charitable ac- to perform at benefit functions knows no lim- its and now FANSplash will be added to his list. Don't miss your chance to see him live. This evening promises laughter and fun as well as a helpful boost to the Splash Park's budget as FANSplash heads into the home stretch of its fundraising campaign. Elizabeth Angelino, Co- President of the Family Action Network ex- pressed her gratitude to Mr. Frattaroli for making this event possible, and fur- ther stated, "This event is a great way to help make a splash for our community while enjoying top-notch ce- lebrity entertainment at the same timel" The FANSplash Commit- tee, and its many supporters town-wide, has been work- ing since last May to raise money needed to revitalize Borggaard Beach by creating a zero depth spray park that would utilize town drinking water. This would provide our town with a public, multi- generational & accessible water based recreational fa- cility. Additionally it would also help to make this facil- ity not only revenue neutral (it currently operates at a $25,000 loss per year for the town) but also create a rev- enue generating opportunity for our town! To date, FANSplash has raised all the money needed for design, administrative, and construction expenses. They are currently raising money for the essential above ground elements that will bring fun and excite- ment to young and old alike. Angelino commented, "each element costs, on average, $5,000 and naming rights are available for fourteen park elements at $5,000 each. If all naming rights are secured by May 154 , we will be able to meet our goalI" Please accept sincere condolences, from the Spinelli's family and staff.
