The raffle has prizes ranging from $5 to $20 to local restaurants and events. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Lupus Foundation of America. The Michigan and Northwest Ohio chapter of the Foundation will be present to answer questions about the disease.

Students from GVSU’s Seidman College of Business, are hosting the event for team management class. This event will offer students and the local community the opportunity learn about this debilitating disease that effects millions of people throughout the world. “Our group wanted to bring Lupus awareness to West Michigan with a more light-hearted approach,” said Jonathan Stuart, one of the Laughs for Lupus Coordinators.
