Laughs for the Troops, a non profit organization, seeks to not only heal through humor, but to assist families of soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors return from combat through financial help. Laughs for the Troops believes in work to heal – physically and mentally.
Comedy events are hosted throughout the country for military personnel and their families to attend. Golf tournaments, runs and BBQ’s are also hosted to raise awareness and funds.
Patterson Companies continuously supports Laughs for the Troops as a way to give back and say thank you to those who risk their lives for us all. This year, Patterson Companies was the title sponsor of the comedy event in Tampa, Florida on June 4, 2016.
Steve Howard, President of Patterson Companies, was surprised by being awarded the first ever ‘Humanitarian Award’ to be presented from Laughs for the Troops. Steve is very appreciative of this and plans to continue to support such a great organization.
