Giggles & Grit @ Laughs in Seattle
It's time for the 3rd annual Giggles & Grit! A hilarious comedy show for a great cause featuring the northwest's best comics.
It's a great night of laughter for an even better cause.
This years money goes to my big sister, Jessie Towbin. Jessie is a single mother, her sons 10 and 14 just lost their dad. He died suddenly a couple of months ago, a devastating blow to the whole family. Shortly after, we lost our own dad. They also received another blow this year, Jessie received a diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Ultimately she will be bound to a wheelchair unable to move her muscles.
Sometimes when it rains it pours and sometimes it's even worse than that. Jessie is going through a hell of a storm right now.
Jessie is a public school teacher and has just moved out of her 3 story townhouse and into a single level home. She needs to remodel the home to be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant.
We are trying to raise the retrofit costs of $80,000 - $200,000.
It's just a matter of time before she will be unable to climb any stairs.
Here's what you can do to help. First, buy tickets to this awesome comedy show. All of the proceeds of both the ticket sales will go to Jessie. Tickets are $30 online and $40 at the door.
So buy tickets now and if you want to donate more please go to her gofundme page, https://www.gofundme.com/jessies-way
read her story and give what you can. Every penny helps. It sucks that life can deal people such devastating blows but the beauty of this event is that sometimes you can help people out all the while having one of the best nights of your year!
Thank you all for your generous support.
