Goodwill Manasota and Michael’s On East invite the public to the most anticipated event of the season: the Mardi Gras Gala. This event features amazing authentic Cajun food, open bar, fabulous live auction items, New Orleans-style music, and dancing. The 2017 Mardi Gras Gala will take place on “Fat Tuesday,” February 28, 6-9pm at Michael’s On East (1212 East Avenue S., Sarasota). This is the twelfth year of the event, which was conceived by Michael’s On East co-proprietor Philip Mancini. Guests dress in beads and masks and enjoy New Orleans style drinks and dinner offerings such as shrimp étouffée, crab cakes, jambalaya and much more. Co-chairs are Lisa and Stanley Eding; major sponsors include Cool Today, Fawley Bryant Architecture, Publix, FCCI, and Sir Speedy. Proceeds from the event will support Goodwill’s mission of changing lives through the power of work.
