DDF is pleased to welcome back Stewart Lapayowker as the event's Presenting Stand-Up Sponsor for his fourth consecutive year. Lapayowker is a renowned business aviation attorney by day, but for the Night of Laughter, he will let his comedic side shine when he performs a stand-up routine to benefit the organization.

"Debbie's bravery and her commitment to finding a cure exemplify the strength and fortitude of those afflicted with rare or less common cancers," said Lapayowker. "We are honored to stand with her in this noble battle."

Tickets to the event are $25 each and can be purchased on the DDF website. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. All proceeds from Night of Laughter will go directly to Debbie's Dream Foundation and are 100% tax deductible.

Last year's Night of Laughter was a tremendous success with a sold-out crowd of over 400 supporters. The event raised $21,000 and DDF hopes to top that with amazing raffle prizes and sponsorships this year. Event attendees are raising awareness and funds for DDF's incredible cause to help make curing stomach cancer a reality.

"The Night of Laughter was our first big event and had become our signature event.  Our supporters enjoy themselves while raising awareness and research funds, and also supporting patients," said Debbie Zelman, President and Founder of Debbie's Dream Foundation. "I love this event because we fill the entire room and we all laugh together for a good cause."

Debbie Zelman founded the organization in 2009 after being diagnosed with stage IV stomach cancer. Debbie's Dream Foundation seeks as its ultimate goal to bring attention and action to this important cause. The organization encourages people to spread the word about early detection and screening because if a patient is diagnosed at an early stage, the chances of being cured dramatically increase.
