The Summit Area YMCA's Annual 'Laugh Out Loud' Charity Auction and Comedy Night Fundraiser is our largest event of the year. While attendees enjoy a night of laughter, appetizers, drinks and desserts, more importantly we raise funds to support a number of programs at the Summit Area YMCA including special needs programs, college and career mentoring for high school students, weekend meals for elementary children and their families in need during the school, and subsidized memberships for military families.
This year, the event will be hosted at the new Embassy Suites by Hilton - Berkeley Heights, an urban oasis of elegant avant-garde style indoor and outdoor spaces with amazing service, exceptional food and premium drinks.

“The LOL event is a great way to support meaningful programs at the Y. By raising your paddle, you aren’t just buying a fun gift or package for yourself — you’re also helping a family get the childcare they need because they only have one parent in the household. You can help a child with special needs feel included and welcomed in a safe space. You can help a teen get the support they need in preparing for colleges and jobs.” said Paul Kieltyka, President & CEO of the Summit Area YMCA.
Adam Zucker joins us as new host, a local Summit resident and lead anchor for CBS Sports Network, whose appearance includes various studio sports shows like Inside College Football and Inside College Basketball.
"I am so excited to host the Y's LOL event this year. I live here in Summit with my wife and kids, and we love what the Y stands for." said Adam. "We can't wait to see how much we can fundraise for the Y and all the great programs and services it provides for the Summit area."
A new lineup of stand-up comedians will also grace the stage: Sherry Davey, Dave Goldstein & Michael Jesionowski. Doors open at 7:30 PM, with comics taking to the stage from 9:00 PM - 11:00 PM. Tickets sales are still open!
