It’s No Joke: Your Community Needs Blood
Knock knock. Who’s there? Your opportunity to have a few laughs and save a few lives.
The LaughFest Community Blood Drive is your chance to give back to your community, possibly win tickets to the fest, and help us raise funds for cancer patients – because the need for blood is no laughing matter.
Grand Rapids Donor Center
1036 Fuller NE
Grand Rapids, MI 49503
Everyone who attempts to donate blood will be entered for a chance to win tickets to a LaughFest show. One lucky winner will be drawn randomly every hour of the blood drive, while supplies last.
Plus, Versiti Blood Center of Michigan will donate $5 to Gilda's Club High Five Campaign in honor of each blood donor. An affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, Gilda’s Club is named after Emmy Award-winning actress Gilda Radner, a Michigan native and “Saturday Night Live” star who died of ovarian cancer in 1989. High Five supports programs that Gilda’s Club provides to cancer patients and their loved ones free of charge.
The 10th anniversary of the “seriously funny” 10-day comedy festival (https://www.laughfestgr.org/) features stand-up, improvisation, showcases and more. This year’s fest runs from March 5 through March 15. Headliners include Jeff Foxworthy, Jim Gaffigan and many more.
