Got a case of the winter blues?

Warm your heart and tickle your funny bone for a very good cause at the third annual “Winter is for the Dogs Comedy Night” on Saturday, Feb. 20. The event benefits North Fork Animal Welfare League.

Once again Osprey’s Dominion vineyard in Peconic will host the annual comedy fundraiser, which benefits the organization which runs both the Riverhead and Southold Town animal shelters.

“Comedy night is a very special night for us,” said North Fork Animal Welfare League board president Dennis McDermott. “The audience loves it, it’s something to do in the winter, it’s a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. The reason we do this event in February is that the people that we reach out to are our year-round residents, who benefit the most from the animal shelter, so it’s a very community-based event and we like that.”

Comedy headliners will include ex-fireman John LaRocchia, Jason Salmon, Ellen Karis and Paul Corrigan.

Along with a night of yuks, there will be Osprey’s Dominion wine as well as Greenport Harbor Brewing Company beers available for purchase during the show. Raffle prizes will also be available during the evening.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is first-come, first-served.

This event is for those 21 and over.

Tickets are $30 in advance online (click here to purchase) or $40 at the door. All ticket sales are final.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the North Fork Animal Welfare League. If you are busy that night, you can still make a much-appreciated donation to NFAWL via the event website at

Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards is located at 44705 Main Road in Peconic. For more information call (631) 471-6335.
