Gesu Catholic School’s Mardi Gras Fundraiser

Save the Date – February 22, 2020

This adult-only, ticketed event will transform the Family Center gym into a scene right out of Bourbon Street, complete with casino-type games and enough New Orleans-style food stations and drinks to keep everyone stated for the Lenten season ahead. Come with an empty stomach and full wallet! Cocktail attire recommended.

Saturday, February 22nd, 2020 (2-22-20)

The event will play an important role in the continued success of our school and its students, with all proceeds going toward Gesu Catholic School’s Fund for Capital Improvements. The success of the 2019 Mardi Gras event enabled the transformation of the school library into a multi-purpose Learning Commons.

Gesu Catholic School, Family Center
2450 Miramar Blvd., University Heights, OH
