Merrimack Police Union holding Night of Laughs fundraiser

The Merrimack Police Union, New England Police Benevolent Association Local 12, is conducting a fundraising campaign.

Over the next several weeks, its members will be contacting local businesses and residents asking for support. Proceeds will go toward youth sports scholarships, holiday food baskets for the needy and the other worthwhile endeavors they support throughout the year.

As a thank you to the community, they will hold their annual Night of Laughs Comedy Show at 7 and 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, at Alpine Grove Banquet Facility in Hollis. These shows for ages 21 and older will feature three comedians from the Boston area who have appeared on "Letterman," "Leno" and Sirius Radio, at Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, and more.
