Comedy Against Cancer

Cancer is not funny.

But the fight against the deadly disease takes many forms. A week from Thursday (October 4, 6 p.m., The Inn at Longshore), there will be laughs galore.

The American Cancer Society’s fundraiser is called “Comedy Against Cancer.” The Treehouse Comedy Club hosts the event, which includes cocktails, dinner and a live auction.

The evening also honors the Gault Family, and their 6th-generation company.

Since its founding in 1863, the firm has supported worthy causes, in its Saugatuck home and far beyond. Most recently, Gault — whose divisions include energy, stone, landscape designs and property development — donated 70,000 bricks to the American Cancer Society Regional Center in Norwalk.

For over 150 years, the Gaults have set the bar for philanthropy in Fairfield County. On October 4, they’ll take a well-deserved bow.

That’s no joke.

But the rest of the evening will be.
