Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation in putting on the Ritz at A Roaring Twenties Gala on Saturday, August 23, 2014, at the Albuquerque Convention Center. Laughter is the Best Medicine, a gala evening featuring comedian Hal Sparks, will benefit Children's Behavioral Health and critical needs at Presbyterian. Let's hit on all sixes for a swanky trip back in time to 1920s glamour.
Hal Sparks has been cracking up film and television viewers since he got his first break hosting Talk Soup on E! in 1999. The eclectic comedian has also hosted a wide variety of shows on VH1 including I Love the 70s, I Love the 80s, and I Love the 90s. Since then, Hal has gone on to play the incredibly popular cult character Zoltan in Dude, Where's My Car? and can currently be seen on Disney XD's Lab Rats.
Proceeds from the 2014 Laughter is the Best Medicine event will be used to renovate the Children's Behavioral Health inpatient unit at Presbyterian Kaseman Hospital serving youth from 5-17 years old suffering from mental illness. The renovation will revive out-of-date areas, increase the number of inpatient rooms, replace recreation equipment and furnishings, and create private patient rooms. The children admitted into the unit receive exceptional care, and with your support, the facility will soon match the level of care they receive.
Annually, the Children's Behavioral Health inpatient area cares for more than 330 patients totaling over 3,000 inpatient days as these children receive the resources, therapy, and guidance to cope with and manage their conditions. A calm, safe place for the children admitted into the unit is vital to their recovery and care, resulting in wholeness of the mind, body, and spirit.
