Seth Rogen’s hilarious Alzheimer’s fundraiser extravaganza


It’s really not as heartless as it sounds. Apparently actor Seth Rogen’s mother-in-law, Lauren Miller’s mom, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when she was 55. And the newlyweds decided to do the right thing, and this time it wasn’t to not sign a pre-nup.

The two organized a new charity event for Alzheimer’s called “Hilarity for Charity,” which happened last weekend. And in the true spirit of Rogen, it was kind of a free-for-all event of laughs and good deeds.  The main focus was to raise awareness about the disease and to be an alternative to all of those old Hollywood variety events.

The evening featured the comedy of Aziz Ansari, Jack Black, Paul Rudd (who was auctioned off to Sophia Bush, poor thing) and others. Music came from Bruno Mars, DJing from Jersey Shore’s Pauly D.

Final result? Over $250,000 raised. Not bad for a first year. Is the Rogen-Miller couple becoming a power one in Hollywood? I vote we call them Sauren from now on. No, Lauth. Definitely Lauth.
