For Dariana

Dariana Verdi

In February 2011, four year old Dariana Verdi was diagnosed with a very agressive brain cancer.  On February 16, she lost her battle with the disease.

To honor her, a great line-up of Washington, DC area comedians will perform on Friday, March 2nd at the Velvet Lounge at 7:00 pm.  Tickets are $10 but if you are inclined to give more, we won’t say no.  All proceeds will go to Dariana’s family and the Live for Today fund that helps other children and their families going through this.



The entertainment:

  • Emily Ruskowski
  • Tyler Richardson
  • Valerie Paschall
  • Mariya Alexander
  • And, of course, Alyson Chadwick (Should I start talking about myself in the 3rd person? No?  Didn’t think so.)

So what are we talking about?

Fundraiser for Dariana

The Velvet Lounge, 915 U Street, NW, WDC

Please note:  Dariana was my college roommate’s (Alison Koslow) daughter.  Ali and her wife Sue are two of the kindest people on the planet.  This is a very personal event for me so I am going to ask you all to spread the word so we can really celebrate Dariana’s life and the type of kindness these two wonderful people inspire through example.
