Tickets are available for $75 per person; tables of ten are available for $750 and tables of twelve may be purchased for $900. Dress will be business and cocktail attire.
Henry Cho’s TV and film credits include appearances on NBC’s The Tonight Show, CBS’s The Late, Late, Show, and NBC’s Young Comedians Special. He served two years as host of NBC’s Friday Night Videos and had many guest roles on various network sitcoms. Henry’s one hour Comedy Central Special, “What’s That Clickin Noise?” is currently running and he can also be heard on Sirrus, XM and Blue Collar Radio. He’s also a regular performer at the Grand Ole Opry.
Live and silent auctions will showcase a broad array of items including adventure and vacation packages, artwork, goods and services, dining and jewelry. The silent auction boasts a variety of jewelry, weekend getaways to New Orleans, Atlanta and Orlando, vacation weekends at Portofino, sports memorabilia including autographed by Former FSU, Coach Bobby Bowden as well as services from some of the finest in our community.
