Laugh, dance and help families coping with seriously ill children.
On Aug. 26, Old Sacramento's Laughs Unlimited will host a music and comedy fund-raiser for Hope 4 Harlow, a non-profit fund to pay for special medical equipment.
The fund is named for Harlow Crisamore, the daughter of Iraq war veteran Sgt. James Crisamore. Harlow, now 19 months old, has cerebral palsy. The toddler is blind, epileptic and requires special care.
While dealing with their daughter's medical needs and expenses, James and Rachael Crisamore of Citrus Heights decided to reach out and try to help other families in similar situations.
"We want to provide equipment for other children," James Crisamore said. "(With this event), we're hoping to provide a wheelchair for a young boy. They're very expensive. The one Harlow needed cost $7,000."
Crisamore also is accepting items for a raffle during the Laughs Unlimited event. To donate, call him at (206) 353-7420.
This is the second comedy night for Hope 4 Harlow following a successful February show.
"It turned out to be a real good event," said Crisamore, who was severely injured while on duty overseas. "We had lots of families turn out. Skip (Cappawana, co-owner of Laughs Unlimited) has been wonderful."
The upcoming fund-raiser starts at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26, with live music and a family atmosphere. At 7 p.m., the comedy show begins for an audience age 17 and up.
Laughs Unlimited is located at 1207 Front St. in Old Sacramento. Tickets are a $15 donation and available online at www.laughsunlimited.com or by calling (916) 446-5905.
