MILWAUKEE -- Stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan and New Year's Eve have become synonymous in Milwaukee, and this year Gaffigan has added a fourth show to an otherwise sold-out slate.

What makes this extra performance even more meaningful? 100% of the ticket sales will be donated to a local charity.

“I’ll be doing a show at the Pabst Theater where all the proceeds will go to benefit the Riverwest Food Pantry. Which is a very unique place that not only helps people with obtaining food but also provides life skills and mentoring,” Gaffigan said in a message to Milwaukee.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Gaffigan's New Year's Eve shows in Milwaukee.  Tickets go on sale Wednesday, October 12 at noon. They can only be purchased through the Riverwest Food Pantry's Facebook page.

“This unbelievably generous act by Jim Gaffigan and the Pabst Theater will enable us to enhance our efforts to make food an entry point to changing lives!” said Vincent Noth, Director of Riverwest Food Pantry.
