GESU CATHOLIC SCHOOL’S INAUGURAL MARDI GRAS FUNDRAISER – MARCH 2ND, 2019 6:00-10:00PM
— presented by —
Thank you to everyone who supported the Inaugural Mardi Gras event on Saturday, March 2. It was an amazing night with 400+ guests that included parishioners, school parents, faculty, staff and friends on “Bourbon Street” in the Family Center. Guests enjoyed delicious New Orleans themed gourmet food stations, a mini casino, live auction items and southern charm ambience! The event raised significant funds for the Gesu School Learning Commons. Our gratitude to Gesu school parent Ann King and her team of volunteers who spent many countless hours executing a successful and memorable event! Merci Beaucoup!
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 sated for the Lenten season ahead.
