Order of the Sparkling City Mardi Gras Ball | Corpus Christi, Texas | February 9, 2013

The Order of the Sparkling City (http://www.orderofthesparklingcity.org) prepares an annual ball in order to raise funds for a local charity in support of women and children. The most recent years they’ve solely dedicated the funds to CASA of the Coastal Bend (http://coastalbendcasa.wordpress.com).  Whose mission is “To speak up for and find permanent homes for foster children in crisis throughout Nueces, San Patricio, and Aransas Counties.”

Over the last four years the ball has raised over 44,000 for CASA.  This event continues to be one of our largest fundraising events, apart from being one that we look forward to partaking in, you can view pictures (taken by yours truly) from last years ball at http://micahd.zenfolio.com/mardigras2012.
From a letter from Patrizia Gentile, MD, President of the Order.

We are pleased to announce that the 9th Annual Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball will be held at the Solomon Ortiz Center on Saturday, February 9, 2013, from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Our band for the 2013 Ball will be Latin Talk, and the popular John Garcia of Blue Moon Entertainment will be our DJ.

A program will be distributed recognizing all our wonderful sponsors for their support.  We are asking for donations this year, which will be used for silent auction items and/or raffle prizes.

Over the last 4 years The Order of the Sparkling City has donated $ 44,000.00 to CASA. In addition, we were able to donate several thousand dollars more to other deserving organizations that provide support to women and children in need in the Coastal Bend.
