29th Annual Mardi Gras Gala
On Saturday, March 6, 2021, we will host our 29th Annual Mardi Gras Gala! For the first time ever, this Bourbon Street extravaganza is going virtual.
Guests will choose from four different charcuterie platter offerings from Akron's own Ernie's Cafe & Catering. But if guests are only interested in seeing what's inside their swag bag that compliments their red or white wine purchase, that's an option too. Last but not least, guests can choose to purchase a digital event ticket without the food or wine options as well.
This year, we are honoring Sylvia Trundle as our Bernard I. Rosen Award recipient. Sylvia exemplifies all that Bernie stood for and all that VAP strives to uphold in our work. We hope you will join us in gathering for an evening of celebration and reflection, and to recognize and honor one of our most dedicated community members, while helping us raise our goal of $100,000.
Like in year's past, our program will include opportunities to donate to our mission, hear from clients about received services, showcase award recipients, and bid on an array of silent auction packages.
