Hilarity for Charity started as a message to my generation that it’s time to step up and realize that Alzheimer’s is not just an ‘old person’ disease, but something that will greatly affect all of us. Having a family member with Alzheimer’s disease has made me aware of the damage it does not only to the person who has been diagnosed, but to the caregivers, friends and family who surround the person.
This is why I’m asking for your help with a donation, this is why I’m doing my part to raise awareness by hosting Hilarity for Charity on Jan. 13 in LA.
You don’t want to miss this event. It’s going to be really fun. I’m performing. Bruno Mars, Paul Rudd, Aziz Ansari, Judd Apatow, Tenacious D, Patton Oswalt, DJ Pauly D, Charlyne Yi, & Ty Burell from Modern Family will all be doing something too. It’s all to raise cash for Alzheimer’s research and treatment. *performers are suject to change
The benefactor of the evening, the Alzheimer’s Association, is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. An estimated 5.4 million Americans currently have Alzheimer’s. By 2050 it is estimated that 16 million Americans will be living with the disease.
Sorry, General Admission Tickets to the event are SOLD OUT. But wait, there's Great News! Way better seats are still available so you can make all the GA folks jealous.
You can still donate $25 here for this fantastic cause. Plus, shoot us an email at HilarityforCharity@alz.org to be placed on the waiting list. Some slackers may not pick up their tickets and you could totally score!

Some Fantastic facts:
