Hilarity for Charity the nonprofit led by Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen and focused on support for dementia family caregivers, brain health advocacy and education has big plans because of its 10 anniversary.
The business will need over L.A. event venue Rolling Greens on Mateo on Oct. 1 for a birthday extravaganza hosted by the HFC co-founders and featuring an acoustic performance by John Mayer, magic by Justin Willman, music by celebrity DJ Sam Ronson and a performance by Chloe Arnolds Syncopated Ladies. This program may also feature food, drinks, throwbacks and exceptional talent.
This years event will likely be hard to beat, the couple said in a joint statement. They launched the business in 2012, inspired to do this after Laurens mother, Adele, was identified as having the condition at 55 years. Through the years, they will have hosted a variety of fundraisers, events and comedy specials, many having a slew of celebrity supporters and the couples famous friends, in an effort to raise awareness and much-needed funds in the fight.
HFCs mission is really as important today since it was 10 years back, and we have been humbled by the support weve received from our amazing community, Rogen and Miller Rogen continued. In the last 10 years, weve raised over$17 million and provided a lot more than 375,000 hoursof respite to family caregivers. We realize from personal experience that looking after someone you care about with dementia is really a grueling 24/7 job. We have been honored that HFC can offer comfort, laughs, funds, and resources to caregiversin need.
