I attended the announcement this morning for LaughFest, a major event benefiting Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids. LaughFest is a 10-day festival of laughter that will run from March 10 to March 20, 2011. It will feature national talent (including, Bill Cosby, Betty White, Mike Birbiglia, and Kathleen Madigan), film, musicians (Dan Zane and friends), improv, laughter yoga, guest authors, and community events. Like ArtPrize, there will be a number of venues where events will occur. So far the first 20 venues have been secured, and they are looking for many more.
Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids is the largest and busiest Gilda’s Club affiliate in North America.
