Supporting Local Charities

2023 Gala Canceled

July 2023

Dear Friends of Laugh for Life,

It is with sadness, but gratefulness, that we announce the Laugh for Life Gala 2023 has been canceled.  We had low ticket sales and couldn’t see that we would sell enough tickets before October to be able to go forward with the Gala.

This also means the end of Laugh for Life as we know it at this point.

We’ve had 16 great years supporting a few local charities – in the past few years, The Mustard Seed and Kids Kottage.  We would encourage you to continue supporting these two charities.

It’s been a whirlwind of emotions as we grappled with this decision, but we know this is right at this time. 

Two of our comedians, Jonnie W. and Mike Goodwin will be in Calgary the evening of Oct. 20th supporting a Youth Unlimited Event.  If you want to take a road trip – I’m sure they would appreciate your support.


  • Friday, October 20, 2023
  • 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM
  • Centre Street Church – 3900 2 Street NE Calgary

We sincerely thank YOU for your support over the years and we thank our sponsors who helped make it happen year after year. Without them, we could not have done it.  Keep laughing … and looking upward as you continue to live out your adventure of life.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
