Denis Leary Raises Laughter and Funds for Autism Organizations
Denis Leary hosted his “Thinning the Herd Comedy Tour” on Friday, July 8, at Mohegan Sun to benefit three autism organizations – Autism Speaks, The Genesis School in Long Island and Quality Services for the Autism Community serving NYC. In addition, the autism organizations were given tickets and special backstage passes to use as additional fundraisers.
The concert was made possible thanks to the generosity of Denis Leary and his friends who performed with him as well as Autism Speaks Board Member Chuck Saftler who is also the Executive Vice President of FX Networks as well as the General Manager of Fox Movie Channel. The comedy tour kicks off the final season of the popular FX show “Rescue Me,” starring Leary.
