This event generates plenty of laughter and brings the neighbors together to help support programs for one of the most important assets of building a strong community—our youth.”

This year’s event will raise funds to provide memberships for military families, membership for seventh graders, Special Needs programs for youth, and the Family Backpack Program which works to reduce food insecurity in Summit.  The Summit Area YMCA is grateful for the generous support of the Laugh Out Loud sponsors, with special thanks to Platinum Sponsor Capital Group.
