Benefits of Laughter

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.

Benefits of Laughter 2014

Mark your calendars for October 23, 2014. We hope you can join us at The St. Regis Atlanta as we celebrate 25 years of change and an exciting vision for the future.
