'Be the Light' Night 2024

Chuckles, Chicken & Charity 2019

Chuckles Chicken Charity LogoJoin us for dinner and a comedian at a casual, light-hearted fundraising event to raise funds and awareness for the Wayne B. Smith Compassionate Care Fund.

This fund provides for benevolent needs of residents and staff at Sayre Christian Village, home to more than 375 older adult Bluegrass residents and upwards of 250 team members.

What’s with the name?

The silly name FITS!

CHUCKLES: Wayne B. Smith LOVED to tell jokes, so in his honor, we always celebrate his life with a night of laughs. We have a hilarious comedian, Rik “Barney Fife” Roberts, along with WVLK’s Jack Pattie who will entertain us on this casual, light-hearted evening!

Rik airs daily on Sirius XM radio’s LaughUSA. Jack can be heard on local WVLK radio weekdays from 6 – 10 pm.

CHICKEN: Wayne was known for his visits to folks, often bringing a big bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken with him. To commemorate that, we usually serve some type of chicken dish in his honor.

CHARITY: Proceeds from this fundraising event benefit The Wayne B. Smith Compassionate Care Fund which provides for the needs of residents and staff at Sayre Christian Village when they find themselves in times of financial crisis. Wayne was beyond generous to those in need.
