Thank you to our 2019 Lunch and Laughter Sponsors!

Thank you to the businesses, community members, and donors who attended and made 2019 Lunch and Laughter a resounding success!

Thanks to you, more than $127,000 was raised to support health care for under-served individuals and families in Pierce County. Nationally recognized comedian Kermet Apio entertained as we laughed away the lunch hour and improved health care in our community.
