Fifth Annual 24 Hours of Booty, Benefiting Ulman Cancer Fund, Livestrong

In a little less than two weeks, riders will take to the Columbia “Booty Loop” for the Fifth Annual 24 Hours of Booty at the Columbia Gateway Business Park. The family-friendly cancer charity cycling event, beginning at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, Aug.24 and running until 2:00 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 25, is accepting online registrations through Aug. 24 and in-person registration at the event. Volunteer support is also needed for the full 24-hour period. Those interested in volunteering can sign up here.

24 Hours of Booty of Columbia, Md., the premier national 24-hour road cycling charity event in the country, supports the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults in Columbia and the LIVESTRONG Foundation. The “Booty Loop” includes a 2.1-mile long course with a mixture of hills and flats that is geared for participants of all ages and cycling abilities. There is no requirement for how much people ride during the 24 hours. Cheer stations and bands will be set up along the course to encourage riders along the way.

“Bootyville,” hosted by Merkle, Inc., serves as event headquarters. Riders set up campsites and canopies so they can sleep, as well as rest and relax with friends off of the bike. In the Food Tent, riders will find meals courtesy of Three Brothers Restaurants as well as snacks, energy bars, water and sports drinks. Bootyville is also the site of the Expo Area where corporate sponsors offer a range of services including 24-hour bike support, raffles for special items and information about their services.

In the 12 years since the organization was founded, 24 Hours of Booty has hosted over 11,000 participants and raised more than $10 million. High levels of attendance show no sign of letting up – event organizers anticipate more than 500 participants this summer for the fifth annual event in Columbia. Through August 13, more than 30 teams and 350 riders have registered for 24 Hours of Booty in Columbia.

“We appreciate the incredible support from the Columbia [Md.] community in being a host site for our event,” said Basil Lyberg, executive director of 24 Hours of Booty. “We take pride in giving our riders an extraordinary experience and welcome people of all ages and cycling abilities to come out and help stop cancer in its tracks. There’s still time to sign up and raise money for this year’s ride.”

Rabbi Stand-Up Comedy Show

Did you hear the one about the funny rabbi? No, really, this one INTENDS to be funny!

The nation’s funniest Rabbi is coming to Oseh Shalom in Laurel, Md., for a one-man stand-up comedy night Aug. 24. Rabbi Bob Alper is heard on XM/Sirius radio (often sandwiched between Bob Newhart and Bill Cosby), has done comedy stand-up shows for 20 years, and has appeared at as diverse venues as the Hollywood Improv and the prestigious Chautauqua Institution.

Rabbi Alper is really an ordained rabbi who holds a doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary. Before he turned to comedy full time, he served congregations for 14 years (with some funny sermons!).

He has performed all across North America and in England, at corporate events, theatres, conventions, private parties, churches and, of course, synagogues.

Critics have said Rabbi Alper’s comedy is sharp, but clean and filled with gentle gibes.  He has performed on college campuses and with a variety of comedic partners.

He has been seen on Good Morning America, Showtime, the BBC, CNN and Extra, just to name a few. And he’s written two books, “Life Doesn’t Get Any Better than This,” an inspirational collection, and the award-winning “A Rabbi Confesses.”

Tickets:

$18 in advance; $20 @ the door; Under 16, $10 For $100 per family, join Bob Alper for a short cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception before the show.
