Comedian Wayne Brady brought the laughs to the sixth annual Stand Up for Homes with Hope gala. To kick-off the evening, attendees boogied under the tent along to tunes by the Collective Jazz Project, while A Dash of Salt catering provided the tasty eats. President and CEO of Homes with Hope, Jeff Wieser, addressed the crowd and spoke of the organizations important mission of solving homelessness in our community. Following the screening of a short film titled, Our Home, Our Hope: The Bacharach Community, Eric Nathan took to the stage to host the energetic live auction. The live auction featured items such as a week at a beautiful home on Kiawah Island, a pampering spa package and a day with a personal chef. Funnyman Wayne Brady rounded out the evening with a laugh-out-loud act featuring stand-up comedy, improvisation and his velvet-smooth singing voice. All proceeds of the event will benefit Homes with Hope.
