LaughFest was started as a idea to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Gildas Club GR and to help people of all ages with cancer. Even if you are a unfunny person don’t enjoy a good laugh, go spend some dollars and help some people for a good cause you just might walk away with a smile. For more info on the entire fest visit:
