Ladies Who Laugh

An evening of laughter and fundraising for scholars, hosted by New York Women in Communications

NYWICI, as it’s known, this week hosted its annual fundraising event at Caroline’s comedy club supporting its scholarship program, and it was a good chance for us to enjoy a few laughs while mingling with our colleagues here in New York.

A stellar lineup of comediennes had us all laughing hard. Who hasn’t ordered the “panic salad” for $19 while in line during rush hour, or been made to feel inferior when bumping into “feral models” on the streets of New York.

By the end of the evening, 12,000 was raised to help support future women in communications by awarding 15 to 20 scholarship to graduating high school seniors, undergraduate, and graduate students who intend to pursue a career in communications.

Thanks so much for a wonderful evening, NYWICI!
