2019 Laughter is the Best Medicine

Laughter is the Best Medicine: Carnaval De Rio. Saturday, August 24, Albuquerque Convention Center

Saturday, August 24, 2019, 5:00 PM, Albuquerque Convention Center

It's time for Carnaval de Rio! We invite you to join us as we parade through the halls of the Albuquerque Convention Center for a lively and colorful extravaganza. This year's energetic celebration will support our cardiac and pulmonary rehab patients as they work toward their best physical and emotional health.

The development of a cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program and facility on Albuquerque's west side will expand access to these vital services, which encourage patients to better understand their disease, learn heart strengthening exercises, become proactive in managing their condition and most of all, regain their confidence.

This dazzling evening, sure to be paired with flashy and vibrant ensembles, will keep you moving all night long! Enjoy an evening of fun along with an auction, dinner and comedy show featuring comedian Rod Man. Viva o Carnaval!

Are you excited? A limited number of tickets are available and they will sell out.

Laughter by the Number: 1,800 Attendees, 67 Event Volunteers, 262 Days of Planning, 21 Year History, 303 Auction Packages, 2 Presenting Sponsors, 1 Hilarious Comedia, $457,000 Raised for a Great Cause
