GILDAS CLUB 'Great Comic Search' Fundraiser - THIS SUMMER!

UPDATE: Congrats to the 2011 Winner - Aaron Kleiber

The FINALS show will be held
at The Improv @ the Waterfront
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22nd:
LAUGHING IN THE FACE OF CANCER is the culminating event of our annual "Faces of Gilda’s Club" campaign, which began three years ago during Young Adult Cancer Awareness week in April.  The campaign consists of outstanding individuals who commit to raising money and funds for Gilda’s Club throughout a 6-month period between April and September.  All proceeds will be used to fund the Clubhouse located at 2816 Smallman St in the Strip, where a philosophy of "cancer support for the whole family, the whole time" is brought to life by developing programs that support those whose lives are affected by cancer.
