Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre presents “An Evening with Kevin Nealon,” a comedy benefit for Hope Hospice Tuesday, June 5 at 1380 Colonial Blvd. in Fort Myers.
A beloved comedian and Saturday Night Live alumni, Nealon will entertain Hope supporters with a family-friendly standup performance. With Nealon’s generosity and the support of Broadway Palm and the community, 100 percent of the event proceeds will benefit Hope Hospice.
“My first experience with Hope was about 20 years ago when my grandmother was cared for in Fort Myers. I was beyond grateful for the love, compassion and comfort that was shown to her, and to the rest of my family as well,” said Nealon. “Doctors, nurses, support staff, and volunteers all brought comfort to my family at a crucial time when we really needed it. I’m honored for this opportunity to support Hope in its mission to help others in Southwest Florida in the same caring, kind and loving way they helped my family.”
Nealon stars in CBS’s “Man with a Plan” and recently starred in “Weeds” on Showtime. He has appeared in several movies, including “Happy Gilmore” and “The Wedding Singer.”
“Kevin has been a longtime friend of Hope Hospice, and we are truly grateful that he will share his time and talent to help people during a most critical time of life,” said Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope Healthcare. “With changes in healthcare regulations and reimbursement, we need community support now more than ever to continue the promise of Hope and meet our community’s needs.”
Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by a 7:30 p.m. show. General admission tickets are $65, and Meet and Greet tickets are available for $150 that include preferred seating and the opportunity to meet Kevin at a private, pre-event reception.
Sponsors include Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre; Chippendale Audiology; Studio Plus; Joint Implant Surgeons of Florida; WINK 96.9 FM; WXNX FM 93X; Traders; and Luis E. Insignares, Attorneys at Law.
