Rice has helped raise thousands of dollars for Relay for Life, the Oregon Food Bank and Humane Societies in the U.S. and Canada. Willamette Week named Rice "Portland's funniest person" in 2015 while another newspaper described her as "the 'Grand Dame of Comedy' in the Pacific Northwest."
Rice includes George Carlin, Richard Pryor and Dave Anderson as among her comedy heroes and inspiration. More information about Rice is posted at www.susanricecomedy.com/about-susan.
The Senior Citizens Council protects home-bound, frail, vulnerable and geographically isolated individuals. Not available anywhere else, its programs promote independence, improve quality of life and prevent or end abuse, neglect (including self-neglect) and exploitation of at-risk seniors and adults with disabilities.
"We guard and protect senior citizens who have no one else to watch out for them. The proceeds from this event will enable us to provide our low-cost services to about more local residents who can't otherwise afford them," said Christi Bird, the council's executive director.
Founded in 1972, Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County is committed to improving the quality of life for seniors and adults with disabilities in Clackamas County, Ore. Many of those served don't have the ability to pay. The SCCCC relies on donations, grants and fundraising events to support those in need.

Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) reported diluted earnings per common share of $3.99 for 2016, compared with $4.12 for 2015. Full year net income in 2016 was $21.9 billion, compared with $22.9 billion in 2015. For fourth quarter 2016, net income was $5.3 billion, or $0.96 per share, compared with $5.6 billion, or $1.00 per share, for fourth quarter 2015, and $5.6 billion, or $1.03 per share, for third quarter 2016.
Chief Executive Officer Tim Sloan said, "We continued to make progress in the fourth quarter in rebuilding the trust of our customers, team members and other key stakeholders. I am pleased with the progress we have made in customer remediation, the ongoing review of sales practices across the company and fulfilling our regulatory requirements for sales practices matters. As planned, we launched our new Retail Bank compensation program this month, which is based on building lifelong relationships with our customers. While we have more work to do, I am proud of the effort of our entire team to make things right for our customers and team members and to continue building a better Wells Fargo for the future."
Chief Financial Officer John Shrewsberry said, "Wells Fargo had solid underlying performance in the fourth quarter as we continued to benefit from our diversified business model. Net interest income increased from the prior quarter, largely driven by growth in loans and investments, as well as higher interest rates. Noninterest income declined from the prior quarter due to net hedge accounting ineffectiveness associated with our hedging of long-term debt as part of our asset/liability management program, as well as lower market-sensitive revenue. Other sources of noninterest income were diversified and stable with the prior quarter. Credit quality remained solid in the quarter, and we returned $3.0 billion to shareholders in the quarter, with a full year 2016 net payout ratio2 of 61 percent."
