Staff Report

When the MOMS Club of FishHawk heard about the organization Water Smart Tots, and its mission to eliminate pediatric drowning in Hillsborough County, they unanimously wanted to help.

The MOMS Club of Lithia-Bevis/Starling will host a FishHawk Comedy Night to raise funds for Water Smart Tots.

The President of the MOM’s Club Michelle Morgan said, “Choosing a charity for our fundraiser is always a hard decision. There are so many deserving charities in our community to pick from.  Because we are moms, we always have a special interest in helping children and children’s charities.” 

The event will take place on Friday, February 3, from 6:30-10 p.m. at the Palmetto Club, located at 17004 Dorman Rd. in Lithia.

This year Fishhawk Comedy Night will feature comedian Scott Novotny, who has been in the comedy “business” for over 20 years.
