August 8th must have been my lucky day. I hopped on Facebook and was just in time to win tickets to the 6th Annual “Crash the Party” Comedy Show to benefit Eggleston. When I saw, I had won tickets I was so excited. Anyways, it was a show that I was glad I didn’t miss. In today’s post, I am going to recap the show and go into a little bit of details about the hosts, headliner, and other guests.
Eggleston is a company that has been around since 1955 and they create opportunities for individuals to make the most of their abilities, contribute to society, and enjoy the satisfaction of working and earning their own living. This year is actually their 60th year of empowering people and changing lives. They are a nonprofit that is a resource for individuals with disabilities. You can read more about them here.
LaSalle Blanks is an Emmy award-winning journalist who is also ABC 13’s new social media anchor and Making Your Mark correspondent on the brand new 3NewsNow at 4 pm newscast. He loves highlighting positive news that is going on within the community. He was the opening host at the event.
Laura Hayden was the headliner at the event and she is a practicing physical therapist, touring comedian and speaker. You can learn more about her here.
I’m sure you have seen me talking about Quincy Carr shows on social media and I have done a blog post about one of his shows too. He is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and a professional comedian/actor. I first heard of him when I attended one of his shows at the Funny Bone in Virginia Beach, which was a comedy show without the dirty language. He immediately became my new favorite comedian after I attended his show for the first time. You can learn more about him here.
Greater 24 is one of the positive news networks that are available online. I’m sure we all hate cutting on the news and seeing a bunch of negative stuff on the news, well Greater 24 is the solution for that. They focus on the positive instead of the negative. You can check them out here.

As usual, Quincy Carr hosted an amazing event. Laura Hayden was a comedian that I was unfamiliar with, but she is seriously funny. It was a night filled with laughs and it was well worth making the trip to Virginia Beach.
In addition, since they were doing the event for back to school that made it even better to know that I was able to contribute school supplies to families who were in need of school supplies for the upcoming school year. Afterwards, there was an after party; however, since I had to go back to Newport News, I didn’t stay for that.
Overall, I enjoyed attending and I cannot wait until the 2016 event.
