What a week it’s been! Between the cheers and tears of a reign’s end on Monday and today’s fundraising marathon, it just might be time to sit back for a good laugh or two.
On Gilley’s Dallas South Side Music Hall stage will be headliner Mark Lundholm, who has appeared on Comedy Central, Showtime, A&E, CBS and NBC. In addition to creating the DVD series “Humor in Treatment” and the Recovery Board Game, he wrote and performed off-Broadway in his own one-man show.
Opening the evening will be Ty Cardaci, who blends his experience, strength and hope with humor through his “The Healing Power Of Laughter,” “Mindfulness Meditation” and “Addiction-Recovery.”
According to Simply Grace organizers, “Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemical and can even reduce pain.”
Tickets range from $25 for general admission to $500 for VIP Tables.
Funds raised from Simply Hilarious will support Simply Grace’s mission to provide a “safe, structured environment to assist women recovering from substance abuse, help to rebuild their lives and achieve long-term recovery.”
