Laughter is still the best medicine!
Senior citizens and other needy people in the community will get a health
boost thanks to special musical-comedy event being organized by the Lions HealthFirst
Foundation and sponsored by South Point Hotel & Casino.
The event will be held Sunday (Sept. 23rd) at the South Point Hotel & Casino, in the
main showroom, located at 9777 So. Las Vegas Blvd. and is open to the public. Tickets are $25, with proceeds helping to fund the Foundation’s ultrasound health screening program.
Because of fund-raising activities such as this event, the ultrasound exams are
free or very low cost to patients, according to James Bartel, president of the Foundation. He said the exams pick up potentially serious medical problems such as masses, cysts, tumors and blockages. “Our screenings give you a heads up on what’s going on inside your body. They’re painless, non-invasive and only take about 60, minutes,” said Bartel.
The event will include music and comedy as well as meeting and mingling with a host of
celebrities and some of Las Vegas’ most prominent medical doctors.
Among those performing are entertainers Rich Little, Paige O’Hara, Bill Fayne,
Genevieve, Michele LaFong, Gordie Brown, Leigh Zimmerman, Lisa Smith and the Shades of Sinatra and Marlon Multo. Kelly McDonald will Emcee the event, as well as perform.
Bartel said the event begins at 2 p.m. and ends at 4 p.m.
