2020 Laughter is the Best Medicine

Digital Event Program
Thank You to Our Laughter Sponsors

We’re thrilled and grateful to share Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation’s annual Laughter is the Best Medicine fundraiser netted over $455,000 to support its Heroes Campaign! In place of the traditional gala event, the community gathered together for a digital experience on Friday night, August 28, 2020, rallying to raise important funds for Presbyterian’s front-line staff.

With burnout among healthcare professionals heightened by the pandemic, all proceeds from the event will directly support nurses, physicians, and advanced practice clinicians, including tools and resources that provide team members with opportunities to reduce stress, relax, rejuvenate, and rediscover joy in medicine. These services and programs will create an impact for our healthcare heroes and their patients during the pandemic and for years to come.

As a result, patients will benefit from having engaged, caring providers who have the emotional, physical, and mental capacity to deliver the safest, highest quality care.

Thank you to our sponsors, donors, and attendees, as well as those who bid on auction items and purchased raffle tickets.

Here’s a look at the importance of the Heroes Campaign and the value these funds will provide to Presbyterian’s Healthcare Heroes.
