Humor Prizewinners and Annual Gathering in New York
by RBS Chairman, David Trumbull

The Sixth Annual Gathering of the Robert Benchley Society will be Friday through Sunday, October 3-5, 2008, in New York City.

The highlight of the event will be the Saturday, October 4th Awards Dinner.

This year's Annual Humor Awards Dinner will be held at one of New York City's exclusive gentlemen's and ladies' clubs in the heart of the fabulous theatre district. This private club is an impressive venue that most of us would not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy. You will not want to miss this event which will be the year's largest gathering of Benchley fans.

Also on the Card

For those in town Friday early evening there will be cocktails and dinner.

The Saturday program will kick off with brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on a 1920s-style yacht cruising around the Island of Manhattan.

On Sunday, the New York City Fascinating Crimes chapter will sponsor a special event.
