All families face challenging times, it’s part and parcel of life. But sometimes sharing a laugh and finding a funny moment can help us get through those hard seasons. They say, after all, that laughter is the best medicine.

With that in mind, we’ve created this special event that we know will bring a smile to your face. During The Funny Thing is, we’ll take time to look at the lighter side of life. Rob Parsons will share humorous anecdotes from his own family, and we’ll be joined by some special guests for some stand-up comedy, entertaining sketches and amazing stories.

We’ll also show you a little of the work we do here at Care for the Family, and how your support helps us put smiles back on the faces of the families going through the most difficult of times.
