The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is pleased to announce plans for its annual Mardi Gras dinner and dance. The event will be held at St. Patrick Catholic Church in the St. Joseph Hall on Saturday, February 23, after the 4:00 pm Mass. All proceeds will benefit the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and will be used to further its mission. Attendees are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items to the SVDP food bank.
Hors D’oeuvres will be served from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. Beer and wine will be available for purchase along with set-ups. A light meal will follow and will include, among other items, seafood gumbo and muffalettas. Desserts will include traditional moon pies and King Cake.
Tickets are $25.00 per person (adults only). We will have several DJ's providing entertainment and dance music. Requests are welcomed. Dress is casual and we encourage you to wear your best Mardi Gras colors. In fact, we will feature a contest awarding a prize for the best Mardi Gras costume and mask. Other prizes will be awarded also. Spread the word and invite your friends and family for some local fun to celebrate the season.
