This year’s fundraiser will be held at the Regency Ballroom at 1300 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, CA, on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. True to tradition, it will feature a dazzling lineup of entertainment, inspiring speakers, and delicious food and drink.
Laughs for Life will bring our community together to celebrate the positive impact San Francisco Suicide Prevention continues to have on the lives of those in crisis and the shared vision of continuing the conversation of de-stigmatizing suicide. “Laughs for Life” includes a cocktail reception, silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, awards and comedy show.
Proceeds from the evening support San Francisco Suicide Prevention’s 24/7 hotline and community programs which empower individuals to help themselves and each other through moments of crisis. To learn more about San Francisco Suicide Prevention visit: www.sfsuicide.org.
