New Bedford Community Rowing (NBCR) will holding a fund-raiser and comedy night this Sunday, February 27, at the Cork Wine & Tapas Bar. In addition, the Cork folks have agreed to donate 10% of the evening’s proceeds from food and drinks to NBCR. The comedy show will begin at 8:00 p.m. and lasts approximately an hour. Tickets are $5. All ages are welcome.

NBCR was started through an initiative from Mayor Scott Lang’s office with the support of the New Bedford Economic Development Council, the New Bedford Harbor Development Commission, and Community Rowing Inc. in Brighton, Massachusetts.

The group’s mission is to use rowing as a force for social mobility and change. NBCR seeks to offer accessibility to the sport of rowing to all community members, regardless of background. Sholarships are available for those in need.
