Laugh Factory Chicago Holiday Toy Drive
Posted on December 11, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – CHICAGO: Through the month of December, Laugh Factory Chicago is hosting a Holiday Toy Drive. We understand that families all around the city are facing hardships and the holiday season can be especially stressful on families with children. From December 17th to the 23rd, we will open our doors and donate gifts to anyone who could use a little help making their family happy this holiday season. We encourage all parents who are having trouble making ends meet to stop by and pick up a present. There are no restrictions and the process is completely anonymous. We also invite all generous Chicagoans to stop by our location and drop off an unwrapped gift for a child in need. In exchange, all donors will receive 4 free tickets to an upcoming show at Laugh Factory Chicago (valued at $120).
We are collecting all month long and don’t want to have to turn anyone away, so please help spread the word. Whether you are dropping off a gift, or picking one up; you are keeping the spirit of generosity and compassion alive in our city. Help us put a smile on the faces of children and the families that sacrifice so much to provide for them.
Happy Holidays & Keep Laughing,
Laugh Factory Chicago
About Laugh Factory Chicago
Located at 3175 N. Broadway in the Lakeview East neighborhood, Laugh Factory Chicago is the fourth location founded by Jamie Masada, who opened the first comedy club to pay comics in 1979 Los Angeles, when he was still a teenager. Following a $5 million renovation of the former Lakeshore Theatre, the space seats 350 people, serves food from local restaurants and has a full bar. The club hosts charity shows every week and Masada is committed to giving back to the community. They have served food to the homeless every year on Christmas and Thanksgiving for the past decade. In addition to his love of philanthropy, Masada has been instrumental in launching the careers of many of today's biggest comics. The New York Daily News called him the "Real King of Comedy." His knowledge and expertise have made him a leading authority on all things comedy and his advice is highly regarded by the entertainment industry's top power brokers.
