Chicago's Second City show benefits Gilda's Club Madison

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Chicago's famous sketch comedy theater The Second City performed at the Overture Center Friday night with proceeds from the show benefiting Gilda's Club of Madison.

Channel 27's own Amber Noggle served as an MC for the night. Gilda's Club provides emotional support for cancer patients of all ages and their families. Executive Director of Gilda's Club Madison Lannia Stenz says the organization works to fill a gap in cancer treatment.

"One of the things we've realized is Gilda's Club was something that was missing from the spectrum of health care in the Madison area," says Stenz. "We have some phenomenal health care in the Madison area for individuals dealing with cancer, but what we were really lacking was that emotional support."

Gilda's Club offers wellness programs, support groups, and educational materials at no cost to cancer patients and their families. The organization was named for Saturday Night Live cast member Gilda Radner who lost her battle with cancer in 1989.
