5th Annual Learn 2 Laugh Comedy Fundraiser

Thank you to all that were able to attend this wonderful event! We hope you had as an amazing night as we did! For those that would like to still make donations you may do so below.


MacCormac College is getting ready for it's 5th Annual Learn 2 Laugh Comedy Fundraising Event! The 2017 Learn 2 Laugh Comedy Fundraiser will be held on April 26th at The Historic Laugh Factory, located at 3175 N Broadway St Chicago, IL 60657. Our first few events were huge successes and we are anticipating an even bigger turnout this upcoming year. We raised a lot of funds at the first four Learn 2 Laugh fundraisers which afforded us the opportunity to provide scholarships and subsidies to MacCormac students. This year we plan on making it our biggest even yet and our goal is to raise $50,000 for our students!

We want to continue to offer opportunities to students that will help them to succeed but we can’t do it alone. We need your help. Your participation with Learn 2 Laugh 2017 is a fun and rewarding way to assist us. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, will continue to support us, and those that plan on participating for the first time this year. We can't express our gratitude enough. Every dollar received will be directly reinvested in the college to benefit the students through increased programming, technology development and scholarships. 

For those of you that weren't able to make it to our Learn 2 Laugh event last year and want to see how fun it was or if you just want to recall the wonderful night you had at the event feel free to watch the video we had put together.
