KNOXVILLE (WATE) — The University of Tennessee Medical Center is holding a special program to raise money for gynecological cancer education and research.

Tickets are $40. Space is limited and all attendees must register or buy tickets in advance. All tickets are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Attendees must register or buy tickets in advance by calling (865) 305-6611 or buying them online.
Since its inception in 2014, organizers say “Comedy for a Cause” has brought nearly 1,000 women and family members together who share a common bond – they’ve all been touched by a gynecologic cancer diagnosis. They say the impact of sharing an evening of laughter with those who are facing a similar journey of a gynecologic cancer diagnosis and being part of this night of camaraderie is amazing.
All attendees to wear teal, the symbol of gynecologic cancer.
