SAN FRANCISCO — The sixth annual “Laugh for Lives,” a comedy show benefiting the Asian American Donor Program, will take place Friday, March 15, at 8 p.m. at the Palace of Fine Arts, 3301 Lyon St. in San Francisco.

This year’s lineup includes comedians Monrok, Jimmy Ouyang, Kevin Shea and special guest MAZE Magic.

AADP is a non-profit community organization geared towards helping save lives of patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other blood diseases. Ethnic minority individuals are desperately needed to register as potential bone marrow/stem cell donors.

Because finding a matching donor is often based on ethnicity, and because there are so few Asian American and Pacific Islander donors listed on the national registry, many patients are not able to find a perfect matching donor. AADP’s goal is to register more ethnic minority donors and give patients a greater chance of finding a perfect match early on in their diagnosis.

It costs $100 to add one new donor onto the registry. AADP needs your help to continue its cause so that no donor is asked to pay to join the registry.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 at the door. To purchase tickets, click here.
