Old Sacramento's Laughs Unlimited will host a music and comedy fundraiser Aug. 26 for Hope 4 Harlow, a nonprofit fund to pay for special medical equipment to help families coping with seriously ill children.
The fund is named for Harlow Crisamore, daughter of Iraq war veteran Sgt. James Crisamore. Harlow, now 19 months old, has cerebral palsy. The toddler is blind, epileptic and requires special care.
While dealing with their daughter's medical needs and expenses, James and Rachael Crisamore of Citrus Heights decided to reach out and try to help other families in similar situations.
"We want to provide equipment for other children," James Crisamore said. "(With this event) we're hoping to provide a wheelchair for a young boy. They're very expensive. The one Harlow needed cost $7,000."
Crisamore also is accepting items for a raffle during the Laughs Unlimited event.
To donate, call him at (206) 353-7420.
This is the second comedy night for Hope 4 Harlow following a successful February show.
The Aug. 26 fundraiser starts at 3 p.m. with live music and a family atmosphere. At 7 p.m., the comedy show begins for audiences 17 and older.
Tickets are a $15 donation and available online at www.laughsunlimited.com or by calling (916) 446-5905.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com
Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)
Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "Report Abuse" link to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at email@example.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.
If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them.
