GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Today marks the start of LaughFest 10, which helps raise money for Gilda's Club Grand Rapids.

The 10-day fest kicks off this Thursday and runs through March 15, with stand-up comedy, improv, music, dance, and films.

Among the performers are headliner Jeff Foxworthy, Jim Gaffigan, and Miranda Sings, in addition to local acts.

Money raised will help Gilda's Club, which offers free cancer and grief emotional health support for people of all ages.

Tickets can be purchased on LaughFest's website or at Laughfest Central on Ionia Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids. Buying them in person will avoid online fees.

You're also invited to help LaughFest's attempt to break the world record for the largest gathering of people wearing mismatched socks this Saturday at Studio Park Plaza.
