Roasting Don Logana to raise money for abused children

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

If you have ever seen Comedy Central and their roasts of celebrities, you know they can be mean, hilarious and very entertaining.

Tonight, WTOC's Don Logana has volunteered to let his closest friends and co-workers have some fun with him, all in the name of charity.

Since July, Don has been learning to dance to take part in the Dancing With Savannah Stars event, presented by Savannah Chatham CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates. The non-profit group trains volunteers who become the voice for neglected and abused children who are trapped in the court system and foster care.

With the help of the community and WTOC viewers, Don has raised almost $10,000 for CASA. But, he's not done yet.

The Roast of Don Logana takes place tonight, Friday October 14th at the Bay Street Theater at Club One Jefferson in downtown Savannah. Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show beginning at 8 p.m.

WTOC's Mike Cihla will serve as Roastmaster, with WTOC's Sonny Dixon, Brooke Kelley, Liquid Ginger's Ginger Fawcett and many others putting Don in the hot seat.

WARNING: There will be adult humor and language.

Tickets are $25 and all proceeds go to CASA. The ticket includes complimentary signature drink cocktails, food catered by FraLi Gourmet and an entry into a raffle to win two VIP tickets to the Dancing With Savannah Stars event on Nov. 10 at the Lucas Theater.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at the door the night of the event or by calling 912-232-0200.
