Celebrate MacCormac's 7th Annual Learn2Laugh Fundraiser

2019 marks MacCormac College's 115th anniversary and our 7th annual Learn2Laugh fundraiser! We are ready to blow all previous L2Ls  out of the water with this years star studded event! The 2019 Learn2Laugh Comedy Fundraiser will be held on April 9th at The Historic Laugh Factory, located at 3175 N Broadway St Chicago, IL 60657. The doors will open at 6:00pm and the show will start at 7:00pm. Each and every L2L has been an tremendous success but we cannot wait to truly wow everyone again this upcoming year. It is through your generous efforts and donations that have afforded us the opportunity to provide scholarships and subsidies to MacCormac students for many years to come. This year we plan to have you rolling in the aisles with laughter one moment and then clapping your hands, stomping your feet, and singing along to tunes you know so well in the next moment.  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 Learn2Laugh 2019 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.
