Give a Hoot
Enjoy a fun evening out with your FHNN friends — and other comedy lovers — to benefit FHNN. Give a Hoot, Gaithersburg's newest comedy club, partners with a local charity each weekend and donates 50 percent of its nightly net proceeds to that charity.

On March 17 and 18, it's FHNN's turn! Tracy Locke is our comedian. Take the all-American girl next door, add a pinch of devilish charm, some raw charisma, sprinkle in kooky, eclectic characters, and it's the perfect recipe for comedy. (Tracy is mostly PG-13, with occasional swearing and some raunchy material. Check out one of her performances on YouTube: click here.)

On Saturday, March 18, FHNN is scheduling an outing to attend that night's performance. We will reserve some table so we can sit together. FHNN members and volunteers who are interested in carpooling should email us by March 11. If you are interested in attending the March 18 event, please email us to let us know you're coming by Tuesday, March 14 so we can reserve a spot for you.
This event is open to everyone. General admission tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. We recommend buying tickets in advance since shows often sell out. Food and drink are available from La Mexicana. Doors open one hour before the show. There is ample, free parking. We recommend people come by car since the Shady Grove Metro is a 20-minute walk from the venue.
