Mardi Gras Celebration Fundraiser to Benefit Two Inspiring Baltimore Non-Profits
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.
Tickets are $125 per person and can be purchased from Courtney Nathan at 410-737-2661 or Nancy Kapp, or online. For the latest news about the event, visit the Mardi Gras Celebration Facebook event page. Net proceeds benefit both organizations.
