What a better way to kick off Fat Tuesday than a Mardi Gras Masquerade Party- Casino Style! The night began with a nice Hors d’oeuvre supper where the Residents received their first batch of Mardi Gras beads to wear. After supper, everyone transitioned to the auditorium where Mardi Gras masks awaited their arrival. Each Resident got to choose their favorite mask to wear!
The auditorium was decorated beautifully with the colors purple, yellow, and green; and it was full of casino games such as craps, black jack, poker, roulette, and not to mention an open bar. That’s not all!
We were blessed to have nine professional dealers from Blackhawk volunteer for the whole night. Not only did the Residents enjoy playing, but the dealers enjoyed spending time with the Residents and Sisters.
After the Residents finished playing their favorite casino games they were able to turn in their poker chips for a wide variety of prizes including: gift cards, cash, and chocolate. After the night ended one Resident stated “You guys closed the party down too early!” With that being said, Mardi Gras Casino Style 2017 will be a night to remember!
