A local Fat Tuesday tradition continues, March 5th at the region’s premier charity event- Mercy Health Foundation Lourdes’ 17th Annual Mardi Gras & All That Jazz!

Mardi Gras is a fun-filled evening of music, food and fun to support the Mercy Health Foundation Lourdes. Raising over $1,000,000 in its lifetime, proceeds from the upcoming event help Mercy Health improve clinical areas and provide excellence in care through technology and facility upgrades.

This annual fundraiser will be held in the Julian Carroll Convention Center in downtown Paducah at 6pm. Lew Jetton & 61 South Live music and various entertainers will be on hand to liven up the party.

Guests can satisfy their Cajun cravings with gourmet treats from popular restaurants and caterers throughout the region.

Individual tickets will be sold at the door for $50. Corporate sponsorships are available for $2,500 or $1,500 and $1,000, with the added benefit of reserved seating and special gifts.
