CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - December 30, 2009) - Looking for a special way to celebrate New
Year's Eve while giving back to a good cause? Join Joe Piscopo in helping
Kids Fight Cancer, a nonprofit organization that has been funding the
Oncology Activity Center in Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital since
1985. This unforgettable New Year's Eve celebration will be held on Dec.

causes. As a film and television star, Piscopo is recognized around the
world and has proven to be one of the brightest lights in show business. In

hilarious original characters and celebrity impersonations, including Frank
Sinatra, who repeatedly endorsed Piscopo's portrayal of him, referring to
Joe as "The Vice-Chairman of the Board."
