Mardi Gras Gala at MontBleu to benefit Boys and Girls Club
The Lake Tahoe Wedding and Honeymoon Association will present its Mardi Gras Gala fundraiser March 30 at the Opal Ultra Lounge inside MontBleu Casino Resort & Spa. The Mardi Gras theme has been extended past the traditional Fat Tuesday.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. with a one-hour hosted cocktail reception, accompanied by several New Orleans-style food stations. From 7 to 10 p.m., food continues, and wine tasting will be offered with several selections of wine.
The event will offer live jazz from the Prophitz of Time and Space. A silent auction will take place during the night, and proceeds will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of South Lake Tahoe.
Nevada First Lady Dawn Gibbons will attend the gala to support children’s programs and the wedding industry, said Philip Blowney of the Lake Tahoe Wedding and Honeymoon Association.
Tickets purchased in advance are $55 for association members and $60 for nonmembers. They are available at Events, Ink next to Mirabelle Restaurant on Kingsbury Grade and at Sessions Salon next to the Fremont Bistro. Tickets purchased at the door will be $65.
