41st Annual St. Cloud Catholic Charities Mardi Gras Event Coming Up Next Month
This is the time of year for giving. And even though we have gone through another Christmas holiday, the giving continues into the new year.
One of the more elaborate fundraisers of the new year is the 41st annual Mardi Gras event. This event is put on by St. Cloud Catholic Charities.
With musical entertainment, a silent auction and more, you’ll have fun and feel good knowing you’re supporting Catholic Charities Domus Transitional Housing and Emergency Services while also helping your neighbors.
This event is a fun, event that has great music, entertainment, as stated above, and all for a great cause, and will be held at River's Edge Event Center on January 27th. Tickets are on sale now, as well as sponsorships available.
If you would like to become a sponsor, in whatever level that you can do, you are able to do that through their website, with several levels to choose from. If you just want to participate in the evening's events, you can do that as well. The tickets to the event are $110 per individual.

If you are unfamiliar with what a King Cake is, it's a tradition from New Orleans that includes a brightly colored "cake" which really resembles a pastry, with a hidden baby baked into the cake. If you find the baby then you become the "king" and you are also responsible for hosting the mardi gras festivities the following year. Not sure that anyone really follows those rules, but it's fun to find the baby.
