We hope you are as excited as we are for Laughing Away the Blues! Here are the essential details you’ll need for the evening:

  • The event is Friday, November 10, at The Grand Event Center, 820 Goodale Blvd., Columbus OH, 43212; parking is convenient and free behind the event center (map).
  • Doors open at 6:00 pm; there will be food, drinks, and heavy hors d’oeuvres (plenty for dinner)! The program begins promptly at 7:45 pm.
  • Upon check-in, you’ll receive a bid number for the live/silent auctions, wine pull, and the paddle raise. If you think you might want to support MHAFC through any of these options, you can choose to run your credit card at registration – that way you don’t have to check out at the end (just pick up your items and go). Your card will not be charged if you don’t win any of the auction items and we do not save any credit card information. If you’d prefer not to run your card in advance and do win an auction item, you can be checked out at the end of the evening. All winners will leave with their items.
  • Our Wine Pull is new this year…and everyone wins! For $20, you pull a numbered cork and win the corresponding bottle of wine. We have over 50 bottles ranging from $20-$100 in value. Wine cannot be opened at the event.
  • There will be a full bar and each attendee will receive two drink tickets. Drinks are available for purchase after you’ve used your tickets.
  • The bar will close during the program and the comedy show (but will be open for a 15-minute intermission).
  • Attire is cocktail; no jeans please.

Take a few minutes to check out our amazing auction items!
