Comedy for a Cure was put together to raise money for the St. Lukes Children's Hospital Child Life Specialist program. Child Life Specialists do play talk therapy with kids that are battling cancer or other serious diseases and help them cope during their stay at the hospital. We were able to hear from a family who's 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia and they talked about how much comfort and support the specialist gave to not only their daughter but the whole family.
The whole idea behind the event is that laughter is the best medicine. So while we were there raising money for a great cause through a mystery wine sale, a silent auction and live auction, we were treated to a few hours of comedy! It was a great night, spent with great people and lots of laughter!

Mrs. Capital City and I working the mystery wine sale table. We had a blast watching people pick out their wine from a table of bottles wrapped in paper bags. They took it so seriously and acted as if there was an actual science behind picking the best bottle!
