Rockport — Tickets are on sale now for the annual Comedy for a Cause Monday, April 24, at 7:30 p.m. at the Samoset Resort, 22 Warrenton St.

Maine Resource Recovery Association invites the public to enjoy an evening with Maine’s favorite humorist Tim Sample. The 24th annual fundraiser is open to the public and tickets are available for $16, $115 for table of eight, at mrra.net or by calling 942-6772; tickets will be $18 at the door.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit two local organizations: the Rockland District Nursing Association (RDNA); and Midcoast Habitat for Humanity/Restore.

For more than 86 years, as a community supported agency, RDNA has provided non-acute in-home and community nursing services, focusing on neighbors who otherwise might not have access to care. Today, RDNA serves predominantly elderly residents living independently in Thomaston, South Thomaston, Owls Head, St. George, Cushing, Warren, Union and Rockland.

Midcoast Habitat for Humanity provides the opportunity of homeownership to low-income families living and/or working in Knox County. Midcoast Habitat has a proven track record of providing healthy, affordable housing for low-income families, enabling them to regain and sustain their livelihoods and control in their lives.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. The event features a cash bar, and online donations are welcome. Comedy for a Cause is part of MRRA’s 24th annual Maine Recycling and Solid Waste Conference & Trade Show, April 24 and 25, Maine’s only integrated conference for the recycling and solid waste management industry. Maine Resource Recovery Association is the state’s nonprofit trade organization for recycling and solid waste professionals. For more information, visit the website or call.
