Chuckling for charity? Yuks for bucks?

Something’s funny about this year’s event to benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund and the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation. “Jocks and Jokes” features three nationally touring comedians — Nick Griffin, Pete Correale and Bob DiBuono — performing in the Grand Ballroom of Prime at Saratoga National Golf Club in Saratoga Springs on Wednesday.

The show gets underway at 9 p.m. and tickets are $40, with partial proceeds going to PDJF and TRF. For more information or to make reservations, call 583-4653.

The “jocks” portion of the evening comes earlier beginning at 6:30 p.m. when celebrity jockeys tend Prime’s Veranda Bar and donate proceeds and tips to the two charities. Local acoustic duo the Play Doughs provide music from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
