Politicians and political hopefuls offered their best comedy routines to a lively crowd at Candidates’ Comedy Night 2012, while raising money for the Allegheny County Music Festival Fund. The event was held at the Pittsburgh Improv in Homestead.
|WOODRUFF FAMILY—Enjoying the evening of laughs are John Woodruff, Jenyce Woodruff, Joy Maxberry Woodruff and Common Pleas Court Judge Dwayne Woodruff (John and Jenyce are their children).
Special guest Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald performed, along with the following candidates: U.S. Sen. Bob Casey; U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle; U.S. Rep.

Celebrating its fifth year anniversary, CCN is one of the major fundraisers for the Allegheny County Music Festival Fund, which benefits children served by the Department of Human Services and/or the Juvenile Section of the Family Division of the Court of Common Pleas. All proceeds benefit the fund.
“Since its inception, the fund has provided more than 2,300 children with meaningful items or opportunities that cannot be provided through traditional government funding,” said DHS Director Marc Cherna. “I can’t thank the candidates enough. Because of their participation tonight, we will be able to make a difference in even more children’s lives.”
