Tracy Morgan, a Garden of Dreams Foundation Advisory Board Member is excited for the event, saying, “Megan and I are so proud to be able to give back by joining the Foundation’s advisory board, and I can’t wait to take the stage at Garden of Laughs. It’s going to be an amazing event that will help children in need in the tri-state area.”

Jim Dolan, Executive Chairman of the Madison Square Garden Company said, “This is a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity to see this unparalleled group of comedians together onstage, and we are looking forward to a fantastic evening filled with laughter, all in support of the Foundation’s important efforts to brighten the lives of thousands of children in our community.”
