CHI Health at Home & Hospice is hosting its 3rd Annual Mardi Gras Gala at the Eagles on Jan. 25. Last year, the nearly 200 people who attended had a great time enjoying a hearty appetizer buffet, raffle drawings, games, door prizes, and a costume contest (costumes are encouraged but not required).
Hospice Liaison Susanne Olson says that the Mardi Gras event just gets better each year and that they’re looking forward to the best event yet on the 25th.
“In the years we’ve done this, everybody who’s been there has had a wonderful time,” she said. “We have added some new things and changed some things where we saw room for improvement, and we hope it’s even more fun this year.”
Attendees will be adorned with beads when they arrive and there will be masks and hats to purchase with any free-will donation if people so chose. There will be separate areas for dining, the games and silent auction at the Eagles on the night of the event.
This event is the largest fundraiser for CHI Health at Home –Hospice, an organization that serves over 50 communities out of their Valley City office. They provide home health, hospice and palliative care (added this past year) in and around the communities of Harvey, New Rockford, Carrington, Jamestown, Lisbon and Oakes, all the way down to the South Dakota Border. Olson emphasized the importance of CHI’s events like this one.
