NO LAUGHING MATTER 2021
“HIP HOP FOR HOPE”
Friday, September 24th, 7 PM
After a pause in 2020, our annual No Laughing Matter comedy night fundraiser will be held at the New York Athletic Club (180 Central Park South) on Friday, September 24th. The theme for this year’s event is “Hip Hop for Hope” as we welcome a hilarious hip-hop improv troupe to our laugh-out-loud lineup. Audience participation is encouraged for an interactive experience, and all ages are welcome.
This fundraiser is essential in supporting the important research of Drs Jeffrey Greenfield and Mark Souweidane at the Children’s Brain Tumor Project, Weill Cornell Medicine. Tickets will be available for purchase soon, so please check back often. It is the support of our generous sponsors and ticket holders who bring HOPE to the children and families facing the heartbreaking diagnosis of a pediatric brain tumor.
