Save the Date for the Next LFTT Orlando Events
It’s not too early to mark your calendar for the 2018 Funniest Night in America – Orlando and golf tournament! These second-year events will take place Friday, Sept. 21 (comedy show) and Saturday, Sept. 22 (golf) at Disney’s Shades of Green, an Armed Forces Recreation Center, and one of the courses bordering the resort. It’s a great weekend that has something for everyone and gives supporters the opportunity to participate in either event, or even both!
“It’s great to be returning to Shades of Green for our Funniest Night in America show,” said Thomas Brown, president and founder of Laughs for the Troops. “The resort and the golf courses were amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with the team at Shades and at Disney’s Palm Golf Course. I am thrilled to be able to bring our event back this year.”
Last year’s Funniest Night in America show featured founder and comedian Brown, along with Phil Palisoul, Happy Cole, Tommy Drake, and event host Tim Wilkins. Brown even had friend and performer Consuela Ivy kick off the evening with her beautiful rendition of the The Star-Spangled Banner. It was a night of great fun, real fellowship, and lots of laughing and giggling.
The best part of the weekend was seeing the smiles on the faces of the veterans who came to play golf or to see the show. Some knew each other; some did not. Some had their families or spouses with them, and others came alone. Some played side-by-side with our corporate sponsors, who loved sharing time with these true American Heroes. But we do believe that all of them left with a sense of belonging and knowing how much this group cared for them and their well-being.
We can’t wait to do it again in September! If you’re interested in sponsoring the tournament or a team of veterans, or you would like to play or attend the comedy show, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
