MMCCU Employees Attended Marshfield Clinic’s “Comedy Against Cancer” Event

Last night, MMCCU was a proud table sponsor for the Marshfield Clinic’s “Comedy Against Cancer” stand-up event, where all proceeds support cancer care at Marshfield Clinic Health System.

“We’re honored to support a local organization working towards a cure to this terrible disease,” said David Murphy, VP of Finance & Risk. “The event was jam packed with local support!”

“I was really impressed with the program. Not knowing what to expect as I had not attended in the past, I was particularly wowed by how well organized it was and the big crowd,” added Carol Adler, President. The featured cancer survivor gave a heartfelt talk that was moving and funny – laughing through tears. The professional comedians were also very funny – enjoyed both and the room was pretty much filled with audience laughter.”

Eight employees from MMCCU attended the event, held at Hotel Marshfield. All enjoyed the evening immensely.

“The hors d’oeuvres were delicious and the entertainment was great!” said Caroline Retzlaff. “The event is for a good cause. I think everyone of us has a family member, friend, or someone we know that has this terrible disease.”

“The event was great,” added Tabitha Forman. “The entertainment was funny. People should come enjoy a few laughs, maybe cry a little, and support a great cause.”

“The event last night was very relaxing, good stand-up comics with plenty of laughter,” said Jerry Litwaitis, VP of Lending. “There was an insightful and compassionate story from a cancer survivor. We got a firsthand look into the life of what happens when you are diagnosed  with cancer and the battle she faced.  Cancer is a terrible disease that we all need to come together and fight against.  Financial contributions certainly helps the fight as does just being there and being supportive.”
