Our friend, supporter, community leader and event mogul Jessica Ann Tyson shared her 40th birthday party by throwing herself an event themed fundraiser called: “Giggle Ball – Jessica Ann’s Chocolate Themed Birthday Extravaganza,” benefiting Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids.
If you don’t know Jessica Ann, as one of GR’s hottest event planners, she always goes above board with her parties. Last night featured strolling chocolate — wayyy too much chocolate, Jessica; a cake walk, live band, our favorite Soundscaper DJ Todd Ernst, dancing, bar and a bake off of ‘whoopi pies’ in honor of comedian Whoopi Goldberg who we had shot earlier that evening.

The Giggle Ball was also the first event we’ve photographed in the newly restored Ambassador Ballroom inside of the Amway Grand Plaza. Tickets cost guests $20 with 100% of the money going directly back to Gilda’s Club.
There are many events taking place during Laughfest that are fundraisers for Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids. Be sure to visit their website, designate ‘other seriously funny events’ in the event type search menu: http://laughfestgr.org/events/
