The annual Mid-Winter Mardi Gras is definitely a FUNdraiser! This adult evening of great food, entertainment, music, and games is something you won’t want to miss! The decorations and the crazy outfits some of our guests wear are worth the price of admission.
The evening begins with happy hour, with beverages available and music provided by the McDonell High School Jazz Band. A grand march featuring “The Saints Come Marching In” leads the guests into the dining room where the tables are festively decorated and the dinner staff is lined up in their white coats and chefs hats to serve you. The menu varies every year, but always features King Cake and beignets for dessert - yum!
During dinner there is always a presentation about our schools to remind us why we are all gathered - to support the students. Other events during dinner might include playing a fun game, “heads or tails” or a special separate fundraiser, “fund-a-need” to help with a specific project (like new lights in the auditorium or a new playground.)
After dinner guests proceed into the gym for casino and carnival games. Redeem your play money for chances to win great prizes including jewelry, guns, and electronics. Perhaps you would rather do a little dancing with music provided by Troppo Big Jazz Band. The evening ends with a fun purse game with a $500 prize and the drawing for the grand prize cash raffle of $1,000 and two $500 winners!
Please join us for this adult evening on February 11, 2017. It is a great way to fundraise for our Catholic Schools!
