For 16 years, Benefits of Laughter has been delighting the Atlanta community with good laughter for a great cause. Held each fall as our primary fundraiser, the event is a beautiful and exciting evening that applauds the passion and dedication of all those involved with Skyland Trail. Every year, a different comedic guest entertains friends, donors, staff, clients and their families as we come together for a night of celebration.
Skyland Trail extends a heartfelt thank you to all who made our 16th annual Benefits of Laughter a success. More than $610,000 was raised to help adults achieve recovery from mental illness.
