Sh!ts & Giggles: At Home Edition Raised More than $48,000!

Young Professional's Annual Comedy Night

On Monday, June 15 Sh!ts & Giggles: At Home Edition raised close to $48,000! Thank you to all those who supported.

This annual comedy night is the marquee event of the Young Professionals’ (YP) Committee of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Greater New York Chapter. YP is comprised of over 200 members, uniting to build community, raise awareness, and help find cures for IBD. 

Congratulations again to our honoree, Sarissa Michaud! She shared: “While I know quarantining has been difficult for everyone, it’s amazing how well IBD has prepared me and my fellow warriors to just sit at home and wait for things to get better...But I am extremely lucky that the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation exists to help make me feel not so alone, tonight, and throughout my entire IBD journey.”
