El MARDI GRAS
El Mardi Gras is a community event in Historic Tobin Hill helping raise money to support Third Coast Charities' mission of fostering community and building relationships between businesses and residents.
The first annual El Mardi Gras took place in February 2017 was received with immediate success and we anticipate 2018 to follow suit! 2018's event will feature locally renowned Chefs: Pieter Sypesteyn of Cookhouse Restaurant and NOLA Brunch & Beignets, Jeff Balfour of Southerleigh, Chris Cullum of Attagirl and more! Art will be sold from local artists and residents can jam to the curated sounds of live music from the Dr. Zog Band!
Funds raised at this event will go back directly into the neighborhoods we operate businesses in. The funds will provide education, financial relief, and physical assistance to neighbors in need; with workshops, fixing fences, painting houses, landscaping, trash pickup...
We all have to be socially responsible as businesses in the community and this event is a great opportunity for us to show our neighbors that we are invested in them!
Consider partnering with us! Your contribution whether through cash or volunteering helps!
If you're looking for something more than just food and music in the common area or a break from the crowd, then get your VIP access here! There will be exclusive food and beverages in the VIP area along with comfortable seating and indoor restrooms. It's all in the name of charity!
