Northwestern Medicine teamed up with Horizon Therapeutics and the Village of Rosemont to present its eighth annual Laugh Your Face Off! benefit at Park West Chicago. The evening of stand-up comedy raised $519,000 for The Facial Pain Research Foundation, which works to cure trigeminal neuralgia.
Pat Tomasulo organized the event along with his wife, Amy, a longtime sufferer of trigeminal neuralgia. The support of nearly 700 attendees and 100 corporate sponsors has allowed for an eight-year donation total of $3.1 million.
A Level Above Events catered passed appetizers during the cocktail hour before the stand-up began. The evening’s impressive lineup included Tomasulo as well as comedians such as Adam Burke, Sean Bair Flannery, Kristen Toomey and Pat McGann.
