RAY ROMANO AND FRIENDS "STAND-UP" FOR THE CHILDREN AFFECTED BY AIDS FOUNDATION "A NIGHT OF COMEDY VIII" FUNDRAISING EVENT

Doris Roberts Hosts Annual Fundraiser Benefiting Children Affected by AIDS

LOS ANGELES, March 9, 2010 - Ray Romano will headline the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation (www.caaf.org) A Night of Comedy VIII fundraising event at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, on Saturday, May 1, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. In its eighth year, the star-studded event will be hosted by Doris Roberts and will star Ray Romano, Dane Cook, Kevin Nealon, Bryan Callen, Jeffrey Ross and Fred Willard.

Generously sponsored by KAOS Entertainment Enterprizes and Wells Fargo, A Night of Comedy VIII will fill the historic art-deco Saban Theatre (formerly Wilshire Theatre) with the sounds of laughter benefiting the Foundation's work with children impacted by HIV/AIDS.

"A Night of Comedy VIII will welcome an amazing line up of comedians that have all volunteered their time and talent to help us support children affected by this global epidemic," said Children Affected by AIDS Foundation founder and board chair Joe Cristina. "It's amazing to be part of an event that incorporates the healing power of laughter to support children in need. I would like to personally thank Doris and Ray for their continuing support as well as all of the performers involved this year."

Romano and Roberts have been involved in Night of Comedy since its inception and the event has raised more than $1.5 million to benefit the Foundation. Last year's event featured performances by Ray Romano, Bryan Callen, Kevin James, Jeffrey Ross, Bob Saget and Bruce Vilanch and raised more than $125,000 for direct services for children affected by HIV and AIDS. The Children Affected by AIDS Foundation is the only organization solely devoted to providing social, educational, recreational and other critical support programs to vulnerable children impacted by HIV/AIDS in the U.S. and other countries.

Worldwide there are more than 33 million people infected with HIV and more than 17 million children orphaned by AIDS. The number of children orphaned by AIDS in the U.S. alone is currently estimated at nearly 125,000.

The Children Affected by AIDS Foundation was founded in Los Angeles in 1993 by Joe Cristina, a Mattel, Inc. executive whose desire to help children was inspired by the outpouring of support he received when he disclosed his own HIV-positive status. The Children Affected by AIDS Foundation is the only organization solely devoted to providing social, educational, recreational and other critical support programs to vulnerable children impacted by HIV/AIDS in the U.S. and other countries.

CAAF accomplishes its mission domestically and abroad through domestic and international grant making and initiatives.
