An Evening Among Friends - with Jay Leno
In all that our city, nation and world has been through with the death of police officers, war and tensions toward one another; a little laughter is needed to rekindle the peace in our souls and who else to do it than iconic comedian and former Tonight Show host, Jay Leno.
This will be the last “An Evening Among Friends” event held and sponsored at St. Mark Catholic Church. An Evening Among Friends grew out of the concept that St. Mark, as a Church, is called to improve the quality of land and give back what it has received. This mission of St. Mark Catholic Church is to foster gospel values through Christian education and to promote the dignity of the person, family and community through worship, service and fellowship. "I am honored that Jay Leno accepted our invitation to assist us as we honor Officer Daniel Ellis' memory and to give support to all of our area Law Enforcement."
In special honor and memory of Officer Daniel Ellis, any current Richmond Kentucky Police Officer, Madison County Sheriff Deputy,EKU Police Officer or Kentucky State Police will have the opportunity to purchase ONE TICKET at the prices of $4.57 (457 being Officer Ellis' badge number with 100 tickets being available). Also, patrons will also have the opportunity to sponsor an officer at the regular ticket price of $200.
Leno is probably best-known as host of The Tonight Show, having been named successor of host Johnny Carson. During Leno’s more than two decades as host, he earned 11 Emmy nominations and three wins. He also has been nominated for numerous People’s Choice Awards, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and been awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
