Ladies Who Laugh: A memorable night of comedy and networking

Last week, I was invited to attend an annual fundraising event hosted by New York Women In Communications Foundation (NYWICI) called Ladies Who Laugh. It took place at Caroline’s on Broadway, and featured a great lineup of comediennes: Robyn Schall, who was the event’s MC, Rachel Dry, Aparna Nancherla, Phoebe Robinson, and Brooke Van Poppelan. The organization’s members- which work in all areas of communications such as public relations, marketing, advertising, digital media, and publishing- enjoyed a lively networking reception prior to the comedic performances. It was great to mingle with such an engaging, inspiring group of women. I also enjoyed how the comediennes entertained us with a wide range of topics from career choices, relationships, personal stories, to city life. The event concluded with a great raffle. Proceeds from the event went towards NYWICI Foundation Scholarships, and over $12,000 was raised that evening. I was truly honored to be a part of such a fun and meaningful event!
