Jennifer Watkins, an accelerated option nursing senior at Michigan State University, used her birthday as a way to give back. Deviating from conventional birthday celebrations, Watkins held a charity comedy show called “Laugh for a Cause” at Brannigan Brothers in downtown Lansing. The event, held Sept. 30, raised money for both the Mission of Hope Cancer Fund and the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
