Venues all around West Michigan will be filling with laughter soon as LaughFest 2022 brings in national and local comedians onto the stage to raise money for a good cause.

Gilda's Club GR will also be celebrating its 20th anniversary. In honor of the milestone, Gilda's Club GR will be hosting The Red Door Gala on March 15, a special event held at DeVos Place featuring a performance by comedian Justin Willman.

LaughFest provides added awareness of Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids’ mission of emotional health support for those with cancer or grief journey. The proceeds from the festival help ensure Gilda’s Club services remain free and available to anyone who needs them.

Gilda's LaughFest will run March 16-20.
