Fritz Coleman, award-winning weathercaster for the NBC Channel 4 News since 1982, will appear in a one-man comedy night “Fun Raiser” to benefit the Airport Marina Counseling Service (AMCS) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 28th, at the Strub Theatre, Foley Building, Loyola Marymount University, One LMU Drive, Westchester.
A well-known stand-up comedian and writer, as well as an honored humanitarian, Coleman offered his support for the Counseling Service after emceeing a spring tribute dinner in March for the AMCS, says Gail Levy, development director for AMCS.
“He said he really enjoyed the event, and that if we ever wanted to do a comedy fundraiser, he would be interested,” Levy says. “So we took him up on it.”
Coleman has been named “best weathercaster” in nearly every major newspaper in Southern California for his work on the weekday editions of Channel 4 News, airing at 5, 6 and 11 p.m. He devotes much of his free time to charitable activities and frequently organizes evenings of entertainment for local service and civic organizations.
Airport Marina Counseling Service is a private, non-profit, outpatient mental health clinic that has been serving the greater LAX region since 1961. The mission of AMCS is two-fold: to provide excellent, affordable and professional mental health services, and to train mental health professionals.
