Laughing for a cure


Nearly a year ago, Hanover resident Stephanie Gertz, a mother of two young children, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a disease of the central nervous system. On the the eve of the one-year anniversary of her diagnosis, Gertz will host a fund-raiser, “Laughing All the Way to a Cure.” The May 29 event happens on World MS Day, and all proceeds from the $50 tickets will go toward research for a cure. The event takes place at 7 p.m. at Temple Sha’aray in Hingham and features comedian Jonathan Katz and acts from two improvisational comedy troupes, as well as a band. For more information, e-mail
