Friends of the late Christopher Donlon, a Catholic Memorial student from Norwood who died suddenly last month, will hold a comedy night fund-raiser Sunday May 1 to benefit a scholarship fund named in his honor.
The event will take place at Nicks Comedy Stop in Boston. There will be a silent auction at 6:30 and the comedy show will begin at 7:30. Tickets are $25 and are on sale at the Catholic Memorial main office during office hours.
According to an obituary, Chris was a Junior at Catholic Memorial, and a member of the Forensics Team, Track and Field and the Bowling Club. He was a Jr. Black Belt in karate.
"This will be a night of fun, laughs and remembrance of a truly great CM knight,'' according to a post on a Facebook page, A Knight for Chris Donlon, made for the event. "All proceeds will go to a scholarship fund in Chris's name that will give a kid with character a chance to attend Catholic Memorial.''
