Sweet Laughs 2015

Sweet Laughs Fall Fundraiser

Chocolate and comedy converge for an afternoon of Sweet Laughs — the fall fundraiser of the Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI).  Proceeds from this event, held at the Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club in Atlantic County, support United Way’s Success by 6® initiative focused on kindergarten readiness for young children.

“One Funny Mother” Dena Blizzard

Dena Blizzard

This year’s event will feature New Jersey’s favorite funny mom Dena Blizzard, presenting “How Did I Get Here?”.

In this hilarious program, Dena takes you on an autobiographical journey through Miss America, Motherhood and making it Off-Broadway. In a heart-warming and funny way, Dena discusses embracing change, celebrating your flaws and ending up on the path to the true you.

Dena Blizzard is a married mother of three and former Miss New Jersey who has been featured in the NY Times, co-hosted with Anderson Cooper and performed at Catch a Rising Star, The Comedy Stop at the Tropicana, Gotham Comedy Club and The Laugh Factory. She is the producer/writer/star of her own Off-Broadway one-woman show “One Funny Mother” that also tours nationally. She has also served as the preliminary host and on air correspondent for the Miss America Pageant on ABC. When she’s not working on TV she is writing/producing content for her web series, where she makes inappropriate videos about parenting that are sure to put her kids in therapy.
