Presented by Get Involved Comedy

Bobby Collins is always the funniest guy in the room. With more than 200 stand-up performances around the country each year, he is a show-business institution who has made millions laugh.

A native of New York, he was literally born into comedy when his father named him for his favorite comedian, Bob Hope. In the 1980s, Bobby left a lucrative position as vice president of Calvin Klein to pursue his dream and ended up working alongside such comedy legends as Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno. While other comics have left stand-up behind, Bobby has kept going, preferring the intimacy and energy he finds in live clubs, theaters and casinos

Over the years, he has hosted VH-1’s “Stand Up Spotlight”; toured with Cher, Julio Iglesias, Dolly Parton and Tony Bennett, among others; and released six comedy CDs “On the Inside,” “Out of Bounds,” “You’re Not Coming With Us,” “Mr. New York,” “I Wanna Go Home,” and most recently “I’m on the Boat.”

JJ Boyd has been described as a one man sitcom; he is a nationally touring headliner who has played all lower 48 states, Canada, cruise ships and the Bahamas. Has opened for Kevin James, Ray Romano, Robert Klein, Billy Gardell to name just a few.

Patchogue’s own Joe Mylonas will be the host for the evening.

Spectrum Designs’ 1st Annual Golf Outing
Spectrum Designs’ 1st Annual Golf Outing
Sands Point Golf Club

Sands Point
5167677177

2014 marks the 3rd year Spectrum Designs has been serving the Long Island Autism Community. Just a few years ago we embarked on a very ambitious journey; to sustain a operating business that would offer employment training and fair wages to people with autism.

Today,1 in 68 children has been diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder. There are an estimated 500,000 teens and young adults with autism who will enter adulthood in the next decade looking for work. With fewer resources being allocated to adult services and even fewer businesses able to accommodate the needs of people with autism, many will lead lives of isolation and have minimal opportunities to engage in the workforce.

Spectrum Designs is committed to making a meaningful impact in the lives of those with autism. Since its inception, Spectrum has employed over 30 individuals with autism.  We have come so far in such a short amount of time and we look forward to the limitless opportunities the future holds for this thriving organization.

However, we cannot do it without your help. Autism is a lifelong neurological condition. Although there is no cure, there is hope in taking action.

Please join us on Monday September 15 at the exclusive Sands Point Golf Club and help us make a difference in the lives of people with autism. Thank you!

The Secret about Transparency: Oil Painting with Angela Stratton
The Secret about Transparency: Oil Painting with Angela Stratton
Gallery North
90 North Country Road

631-751-2676

In this Oil Painting Workshop for beginners and intermediate painters, we will explore the ‘secret’ on how to render transparent objects; you will learn how to translate objects that you can see through and those that you can see in and what makes them different from solid objects.

In these two days all students will paint the same still life set up with objects that will depict transparency and those that are solid. The ‘secret’ is in the ‘seeing’, how one translates the object through color, value, edges and perspective. It is much simpler than you think.  This workshop will teach you all those principles and much more in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.

Each student will receive individual attention and everyone will go home with a completed still life painting.

Since 1978, Angela Stratton has built an impressive body of work, exhibiting widely in the tri-state area and on the web.  She is a prize winning artist whose Elected Memberships includes: Oil Painters of America; American Women Artists; Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and Salmagundi Club.

Drawing Birds: Colored Pencil workshop with Laura Westlake
Gallery North
90 north country road
Setauket
631-751-2676

In this exciting workshop, accomplished artist Laura Westlake will teach you how to create exquisite images using colored pencils. Each student will accomplish an understanding of how color pencil is applied in a realistic approach. By the end of the workshop students will leave with a finished work of art or a piece that they can finish on their own.

A native Long Islander, growing up in Stony Brook, Laura Westlake is essentially a self-taught artist drawing and painting since the age of four.  Her love of nature and the outdoors has always been the inspiration for her work. Laura studied at Santa Barbara College in California, and The School Of Visual Arts in New York where she developed an interest in commercial illustration that lasted for 15 years.  Her career included work for television, magazines, portraiture, and book illustration.  She later turned her focus back to the fine arts in the late 1980’s painting subjects, which came from personal experience. 


Students are responsible for bringing their own materials.

Date: September 27 & 28
Time: 12pm-4 pm
Fee: $160

Formed in 1958, the Del-Satins joined forces with Dion in 1961 and worked on his new song, “Runaround Sue.” They also sang on Dion’s later solo hits, “The Wanderer,” “Lovers Who Wander,” and “Little Diane,” among others. Following the success of thier 1962 single “Teardrops Follow Me” they found regular work on TV and radio.

In 1991, the Del-Satins, led by Stan Zizka, re-formed for nostalgia shows and issued an album, Still Wandering. In May 2011, The Del-Satins (Stan Zizka, Les Cauchi, Fred Ferrara and Tom Ferrara) reunited for two concerts, one in the Yorkville neighborhood of Manhattan, and the second one on Long Island. Added to the group are Charlie Aiello, Edie Van Buren and Joe Ferrara. These “nostalgia” concerts were well received, and they are planning on more concerts in the future.

This great show will have: an opening act of the infamous Uncle Floyd, Carter Rubin singing the “Star Spangled Banner,” The Wantagh American Legion led by Color Guard Captain John Menechino, “Gig’s and the Professor” 30 piece orchestra led by Randy Ortiz & John Martelli, and the music of The Del-Satins featuring Patchogue’s own Stan Zizka, lead singer.
