6th Annual Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer
- October 12, 2017
Pink Positive is proud to present the 6th Annual Comedy Fundraiser: Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer!
This year is our 6th Annual Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer Comedy Show! Each year, more people show and more money is raised and each year I can’t thank you enough for your support.
I decided to mix it up a little bit this year and I added a magician to the show!
The showcase includes Houston comedians Steve Padilla, Timothy Banfield, Steven Lemus and Victor Tran and Houston magician Jamie Salinas!
From 2005 to 2011, my mother and I (and others) would walk in Komen’s Race for the Cure and as time went on, she became weaker from her cancer and cancer treatments. We went from walking the entire 5k to only doing about a 10 minute walk and turning back around- I would still make her walk through the finish line!
In 2011, I thought about the next year and how she will probably be weaker than this year and I don’t want her to feel defeated (especially because she never felt defeated!) so I wanted to come up with something she could participate in but not have to anything at all yet somehow have some fun.
So in 2012, I started Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer. Why not go to a comedy show and laugh? We all need some fun in our lives and while she was fighting cancer with all she had, she still deserved to have fun and Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer!
I’m asking you to share this with anybody and everybody. Last year, a friend told me that she sent it to her company’s Philanthropy Group and they sent it to over 500 employees!
If you can’t attend, please share the email and flyer and donate to the cause. You can use the same link to buy tickets and to donate online.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
