Patricia Heaton and Ray Romano, both of “Everybody Loves Raymond” fame, lent their comic talents to support the 9th Annual Comedy for a Cure fundraiser yesterday.

The event took place on Sunday, April 11th in Hollywood at Boulevard3. Patricia Heaton hosted the fundraiser, and Ray Romano headlined an ensemble of comedians including stand-up comics Jeff Allen and Mike Polk. Other celebrities included Larry Miller, Buzz Aldrin, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Vincent Gallo, Melina Kanakaredes, Tim Daly, Leeza Gibbons and many others. In addition to the comedy performances, there were receptions, a silent auction and a live auction.

Comedy for a Cure raises funds to benefit the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance and families affected by tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), and has raised over $2.5 million for research, programs and services. TSC is a genetic disorder that causes potentially fatal tumors to form on a child’s vital organs. TSC affects one in 6,000 children and is the leading genetic cause of epilepsy and autism.
