LOWELL, Mich. (WZZM)- For the first time ever LaughFest is traveling to Lowell tonight. Several comedians will take the stage at the Lowell Performing Arts Center.
Earlier this week the Gilda's Culb in Lowell opened its doors to show us where the proceeds from tonight's performance are going. Lowell's Gilda's Club includes a community kitchen where volunteers fix dinners for cancer patients and their families. Support groups meet throughout the day, some visitors knit while others do Origami. Upstairs there is a castle-themed area for children to play.
Dorace Van Meurs with Gilda's Club of Lowell says, "We know that there's a lot of people in the community yet who are in isolation, living a cancer journey. And they haven't heard about us yet or they haven't found their way through our red doors. And so we want to continue to get the word out to the community that we are here, and we have something for you if you are on a cancer journey."
Tonight's performances start at 7:30.
