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 authentic New Orleans cuisine, open bar, live Dixieland music and dancing, an array of circus performers, fabulous live auction items, and more. This is the fifteenth anniversary of the event, which was conceived by Michael’s On East co-proprietor Philip Mancini. Guests are encouraged to wear fun and festive Mardi Gras attire and enjoy Big Easy-style drinks and dinner offerings such as Crawfish Étouffée, crab cakes, Jambalaya, Oysters Bienville, and much more. Co-chairs are Steve Altier – who was a member of the inaugural Mardi Gras committee – and Angela Forson, who are Goodwill Ambassadors – community members who have made a commitment to share the mission of Goodwill Manasota with the greater community by volunteering at events, speaking on its behalf, creating new fundraisers, and introducing Goodwill to their friends, family and colleagues. Grand Marshal Sponsor is CS&L CPAs.

Goodwill’s 2020 Mardi Gras Gala will take place on Saturday, February 29, at 6:30 pm at Michael’s On East, 1212 East Ave. South, Sarasota. Tickets are $175 per person; 100% of proceeds from the event support Goodwill’s mission of changing lives through the power of work.
