What is it? After previous virtual events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everything is happening in person this year. Event organizers share that Laugh for the Cure is an evening of live comedy, entertainment, an open bar, heavy hor d’oeuvres, and a live and silent auction. The dress code is cocktail attire.
Special guests this year include comedian Henry Cho, who has appeared on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on CBS, and WBTV’s John Carter who will emcee the event.
Proceeds from the event go towards supporting the mission of Susan G. Komen. If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of the house for a nice evening out, Laugh for the Cure is a great way to do that for a good cause.
Mary King spoke with Laugh for the Cure founder Tammy Greyshock when they celebrated their 20th year virtually in 2021.
