In 2017, Laughs for Literacy hosted "Twisted Colleague-Wed Game." Three hundred persons attended the colleague-wed game, which was followed by entertainment by comedian, Tim Cavanagh. The event raised over $45,700 to provide literacy services in Allen County. In a year, the Literacy Alliance serves nearly 400 adult students.

This event raises funds to help us reach more of the 30,000 adults who lack literacy skills and a high school diploma. We are grateful to terrific volunteers and generous sponsors for their support.
