A Seriously Funny Night

For 25 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 more than 600 of Atlanta’s business and corporate, community, and philanthropic leaders.

More than $15 million have been raised from Benefits of Laughter to support life-changing therapeutic programs and fund financial aid awards to bring the costs of treatment within reach for more clients and families.

Annually the event raises more than $1 million through corporate and individual contributions. Proceeds support financial aid awards that improve access to treatment and important therapeutic programs for adults and teens.
