On November 7th, the 8th annual Stand Up for Peace took place at the renowned B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, NYC hosted by the Young Leadership Committee of Seeds of Peace. This year was a success by any measure with people coming together through comedy to support peace around the world. The room was filled with laughter as a packed house enjoyed the comedic stylings of Joe DeRosa, Gabe Liedman, Vidur Kapur, Max Silvestri, Hannibal Buress and of course, our surprise guest, Jim Gaffigan! Stand Up for Peace raised nearly $45,000 to support Seeds of Peace, the International Camp, regional programming, and the nearly 5,000 graduate Seeds around the world that are actively pursuing the goal of peace.
We would like to thank all of the attendees of the event, the comedians, our co-chairs, Dylan Hoffman, Brian Meier, Ramy Nagy, and Rubina Shafi and of course, the entire YLC Host Committee for their dedication and amazing fundraising talents.
We look forward to the 9th annual Seeds of Peace Comedy Show next year and hope to see you there!
