True Blue Comedy Night 2013: HUGE Success
Raising over $8,000 for our Club members, True Blue 2013 was #awesome. Joe DeRosa came in all the way from New York City to make us laugh with his edgey humor. Favorite, two-time local emcee, Mike Albanese, hosted us and as always- was a crowd favorite. Check out a few pics here on our Facebook page.

"I joined Club Blue because I loved the combination of networking and giving back; from social and networking events with like-minded peers to volunteer days in the club, there is something for everyone.
