Cresskill, NJ: RD Legal Funding, LLC (“RD Legal”) continues its commitment to the 911 First Responders community by sponsoring a comedy fundraiser for the FealGood Foundation. The event is being presented by the Laughter Saves Lives Foundation and will take place on Friday, March 8th, 2013 at the Colonial Springs Golf Club in Long Island.
The event will feature comedians Jim Dalakis and Tom Dadario and will be hosted by John Larocchia, a retired firefighter and comedian. The FealGood Foundation is an organization dedicated to helping the First Responders community, advocating for issues on their behalf. The fundraiser will help the foundation continue its good work.

This fundraiser should bring a lot of laughs, and it’s all for a great cause-helping the First Responders community. Joseph Genovesi, Senior Vice President of RD Legal, will be attending the event and had this to say: “I look forward to seeing everyone and enjoying a great night of comedy. I’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and discuss how RD Legal can help you access your award.”
The rate at which First Responders are receiving funds is painfully slow. It is truly appalling that the funding got caught up in red tape and various delays, preventing many First Responders from getting the help they need. Recently, the New York Post reported that checks finally started going out. They are the first since the Zadroga bill was passed in 2010.
It is truly tragic that those who sacrificed so much must wait so long to receive compensation. Unfortunately, the Victims Compensation Fund is structured in such a way that the vast majority of funds will not be paid until 2016. For those who can’t wait this long, RD Legal can help by advancing a portion your award.
In the past, RD Legal has had the honor of helping First Responders who were experiencing delays receiving awards from the New York City settlement. To learn more about RD Legal’s Zadroga bill settlement funding program, please contact Joseph Genovesi at 1-800-565-5177, ext. 140.
