Laughter was Contagious at Women’s Night Out


Women from the area discovered that laughter is the best medicine when they attended the Women’s Night Out event at Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) on Wednesday, May 9. The hospital hosted 225 women who laughed with comedian, Stevie Ray. Ray is the founder of Stevie Ray’s Improv Company in Minneapolis. He performed his first show at the age of nine and has made people laugh ever since. He has toured the country working with such stars as Paula Poundstone, Rich Hall from Saturday Night Live, and Weird Al Yankovik. His home state is Minnesota and sharing his perspective on Wisconsin created non-stop laughter throughout the show.

Amy Yaeger, marketing director for BRMH said, “We were thrilled that 225 women took time from all the pressure and stress that comes with being a woman to slow down, laugh, and celebrate with us. Providing a night of laughter and relaxation achieved our goal to help women unwind and have some fun.”

After the comedian’s show, women toured the hospital to learn about services available at BRMH. Area vendors including, Krohn Clinic, Scholze Ace Home Center, the Karner Blue Garden Club, Family Health Center of Marshfield-Black River Falls Dental Center, Lunda Community Center and Revolution Coffee also provided information and services for women.
