Wilton’s Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County is planning “Laugh Out Loud,” a benefit to be held Saturday, May 5 at 6:30 p.m. at The Westport Woman’s Club in Westport. This comedy-for-a-cause event will raise funds to benefit the non-profit home healthcare agency’s patients in need and will feature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, live and silent auctions, and the hilarious stand-up comedy of Lisa Blythe Perlman, Ellen Loyd and Kevin Flynn.

The auction offerings at this year’s annual benefit are exceptional and include tickets to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, tickets to Saturday Night Live, tickets to Conan O’Brien, tickets to a Yankees/Red Sox game, a stay at the luxurious Hob Knob Inn on Martha’s Vineyard, and much, much more.

They’re joined by Missy Dorsey, Ken Edgar, Dawn Jeffrey, Janet Leibovitz, Laurie Lister, Phyllis Osterman, Hal Shuck, Carlyn Tiefenthaler and Kathy Winter.
