RANCHO CORDOVA CA - Comedian Rodney Perry is the scheduled headlining act for a fundraiser at Tommy T’s in Rancho Cordova at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 12. Founder Joe Allen of Strikes 4 Kids is dedicated to building fundraising events for children. “We are a non-profit, professional athlete event management company. We partner athletes with children’s organizations in the community,” he said. “I have been donating to them for the past two years and when I decided to start this company it was a no-brainer.” This special event will be taking place at Tommy T’s Comedy Club and Dinner Theatre. Tommy T’s is located in the Nimbus Winery on Folsom Boulevard. “My goal for this benefit is just to be able to put on a great show that goes to help out the children,” Allen said. Perry has been entertaining crowds for nearly a decade. His credits include Madea’s Big Happy Family, Chelsea Lately and The Mo’Nique Show. Perry was born in Chicago and raised in Louisiana. He practiced his comedy in the Navy, to some of his toughest crowds. He has now settled in the Bay area. Come out to Tommy T’s at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 12 to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and enjoy an evening full of laughter.
