A pair of distinguished local non-profit organizations — Blind Industries and Services of Maryland (BISM) and The Polakoff Foundation — are teaming up for a unique Mardi Gras Celebration fundraiser March 3, 2012 at the Baltimore Sheraton North in Towson from 7-11 p.m.

If you have ever partied down Bourbon Street, or if you have always wanted to experience what New Orleans is all about, you don’t want to miss this sure-to-be memorable night. The Mardi Gras Celebration will be emceed by WBAL-11 NBC TV news anchor Stan Stovall and features the music of Baltimore-based, New-Orleans-flavored Junkyard Saints. Local celebrity bartenders will greet and serve attendees at the Hurricane bar, a signature New Orleans beverage. The creole-themed menu includes tasty New Orleans favorites like oysters, jambalaya and king cake.
