On May 5, at the Empress Theatre, Bay Area comedians and musicians will generously lend their talents to commemorate and celebrate the life of Rich Freedman—a local hero, community leader, award-winning reporter, and humanitarian.

The event, titled “The Cow has Jumped Over the Moon,” will showcase an eclectic mix of entertainers to an audience comprised of his friends, family, and community members. Together, we all ‘Love him to the Moon and Back’…or we can simply moon him.

Matthews, Dewayne Pate, Volker Strifler, Don Bassey, Stabe Wilson, Perry Thorwaldson,Thor Audio Solutions, Jim Douglas, Prime Time Entertainment, Vallejo Times Herald, and Frazier Trager Presents.
