'Night of smiles' benefits 5-year-old battling DIPG

ERLANGER, KY (FOX19) - They say laughter in the best medicine, so the community will come together Thursday for a night of smiles in support of 5-year-old Brooklyn Smith.

Brooklyn was diagnosed with Defuse Intrinsic Pontine Geloma, or DIPG, just seven days after her fifth birthday.

A Night of Smiles and Laughter will benefit Brooklyn and her family. Comedic duo Cathy "Chick" Halloran of CHICKS and CHUCKS, Inc., and Terry Foster will bring the laughs along with Michelle Bryant.

Raffles and door prizes will be on-hand. Tickets are $25 and the event is for adults ages 21 and over.

The benefit starts at 7 p.m. at Receptions, 1379 Donaldson Highway in Erlanger. For more information about the event or to order tickets, call (859) 635 – 9220 and ask for Judy. If you can't attend the event and would still like to donate to the Smith family, you can visit their GoFundMe.com page, which has raised over $17,000 already.
