I conclude my four-day tribute to ROWAN & MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN with a special announcement. The awesome charitable organization known as Actors & Others for Animals is holding a gala tribute to LAUGH-IN next weekend on Saturday, Nov. 14th. CELEBRATION OF CARING is annual event that raises money for important programs such as spaying/neutering, pet overpopulation control and pet-assisted therapy.
The event will take place at Universal Hilton starting at 11:00am. There will be a silent auction and a no host cocktail hour-and-a-half, followed at 12:30 pm by a gourmet vegetarian luncheon. The entertainment program hosted by Bruce Vilanch starts at 1:30 pm. Several LAUGH-IN cast members and other notable TV stars will be in attendance (check back soon for a list of names).
Beloved LAUGH-IN star JoAnne Worley is the current president of the organization. Tickets to this gala start at $175.00 each, and are well worth it for the great cause. Here is a link to the website for more information. To purchase tickets or make a donation you can also call 818-755-5080.

This is awesome! The Pet Assisted Therapy is a really great program. The patients are overcome with joy when they interact with the animals and that is far more healing than any medicine can do.. . .Thanks for sharing this Doug.
