We are thrilled with the outcomes of LaughFest in year three. The results indicate the community supports the festival and the important role laughter plays in emotional health,” said Leann Arkema, president and CEO, Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids. “LaughFest provides for a positive impact on our local economy and is raising the visibility of Grand Rapids and West Michigan on a national level as well.”
