The Laugh All Day event on June 21 benefits the Alzheimer’s Association

A Laugh All Day event will be held on June 21 at the Brookdale Highlands Assisted Living Facility at 4250 Lakeland Highlands Road in Lakeland.

The event is part of The Longest Day, which raises money and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association. There will be three comedy performances: 10 a.m., with breakfast bar ($10 admission), 2 p.m., with a hot dog bar lunch ($15); and 6:30 p.m., with a taco bar dinner ($20).

The headliner will be Lakeland pharmacist-comedian Jaya Koovackai, stage name Jaya K, who will make her debut at the event. She will be joined by three other local comedians – Jon Fon, Mike Williams and Justin Fennell – for the 6:30 p.m. show.

Kelly Terwilliger of Babson Park is hosting the Laugh All Day event to celebrate the life of her late aunt, Darlene Anderson, who died of Corticobasal Syndrome, a rare form of Alzheimer’s.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Florida has the second-highest number of residents with Alzheimer’s disease in the country, with more than 580,000 people.
