2006_2_health_microphone.jpgIf you think that laughter is the best medicine, then the volunteers of the New York City Free Clinic have a dose for you. This Thursday, February 23rd, the Clinic is hosting "Stand-up For Healthcare Access," an evening of stand-up comedy and dinner to raise funds for the Clinic. Performing are nine of America's top comics including Colin Quinn, Greg Giraldo (of Comedy Central), and Greg Rogell (The Aristocrats, Half-Baked). The event takes place at the Rosenthal Pavilion at the Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South at 6:30 pm. All funds raised go towards providing free health care for the uninsured of New York City.

Tickets are available online or at the NYU Medical Center Ticket Xpress Office (550 First Avenue, Ground Floor) or at Kimmel Center Ticket Central (566 La Guardia Place).

So take two tickets and call us in the morning.

The New York City Free Clinic first opened its doors to the public in March of 2002 and has since been offering free healthcare on Saturdays throughout the year. It is completely staffed by volunteers and is always looking for more. Visit their website for more information or to learn how you can help.
