Peoria’s Central Illinois Friends are holding their annual Mardi Gras fundraiser virtually this year on Saturday, March 6.
From the Facebook event page:
Tune in from the comfort of your home for an hour-long special all about Central Illinois Friends and community!
We are in need of your help now more than ever! Please consider buying a ticket for yourself and a guest. If you are unable to attend, we welcome your donation of support. Donations can be made at friendsofcentralillinois.org.
While we’ll have to wait to gather on the dance floor, we can’t wait to celebrate our accomplishments, thank our supporters who make it all possible, and look to the important work ahead.
We have a lot to cover, so now isn’t the time to sit it out! Mardi Gras ticket prices have been adjusted accordingly to less than half the usual price. Two tickets for less than the price of one!
Your ticket, in addition to supporting the work of Central Illinois Friends, buys you a fun bag of goodies with Mardi Gras masks, beads, Ghirardelli chocolates, and a split (small) bottle of Champagne per ticket!
Interested in hosting a table? Sign up to be a table captain and invite your friends and loved ones, also attending Mardi Gras, to join you during the evening’s social breakout session!
Once you purchase a ticket, you’ll receive an email with complete event instructions and ways to encourage your friends to be involved throughout the entire country!
Tickets are $30 per viewing person and $50 to host a table. The party starts at 7:30. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. To buy tickets or host a table, go to https://one.bidpal.net/2021cifriendsmardigras/ticketing.
