Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids is teaming up with Michigan Blood and Blue Care Network to host a special blood drive as part of LaughFest.

For everyone who attempts to donate blood at this drive, $10 will be donated to the High Five Campaign -- which supports free emotional healthcare, cancer and grief support programs offered through Gilda’s Club.

Additionally, anyone who attempts to donate will receive a free LaughFest t-shirt or LaughFest Silipint, and will be entered to win tickets to hilarious LaughFest shows.
