Event Details and Contact Info

This adults only, ticketed event will transform the Family Center gym into a scene right out of Bourbon Street. Enjoy casino-type games, sample New Orleans-style food stations and sip on beverages — enough to keep everyone sated for the Lenten season ahead. Come with an empty stomach and a full wallet! Cocktail attire suggested.

6:30PM – 11:00PM

Many of our classrooms are in need of capital improvements such as new paint, flooring, furnishings and technology.  In order to keep Gesu a front-runner in Catholic private education, and in an effort to offer our teachers and students the most conducive learning environment, all proceeds from this year’s Gesu Mardi Gras will thus be allocated for the renovation of classrooms and surrounding areas. We need your participation to make this event happen!

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