March 8 – March 18
This is the second year for LaughFest,  the well-received Gilda’s Club “Festival of Laughter.” Many nationally-known, popular comedians, such as Whoopi Goldberg, will ply their trade at Grand Rapids venues. There will also be plenty of local talent supporting the cause. “LaughFest provides a way to raise awareness and funds for a very important cause — supporting children, adults, families and friends as they find their smile and laughter in the midst of a cancer or grief journey. All proceeds from LaughFest benefit the programs offered through Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids.” (Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids)
Gilda Radner, one of the great American comediennes from the 1970s and 1980s is the club’s namesake. She gained fame as one of the charter members of the “Not Ready for Prime-time Players” on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. She passed away from the disease in 1989.
