On Saturday, Feb 10th, the Knights of Columbus Council #1760 of Juneau hosted a Mardi Gras themed fund raising dinner for REACH at St. Ann’s Parish Hall. This is the second year the Knights have sponsored this event on behalf of REACH, and the event has really grown!
There were only 100 tickets for the dinner and nearly all of them were sold! Baker Dani Beyers whipped up some magic with freshly made King Cakes and beignets that made everyone salivate! The main course was Louisiana Shrimp boil, crab cakes, and red beans and rice. We ate really well!
Additional money was raised thanks to Alaskan Brewing donating the beer And, we auctioned off a matching hat and scarf from the Canvas at REACH, two plates designed by Ceramic artist, Alex Botelho, a beautiful 3-piece glassware set, and a cheesecake that was amazing!
REACH’s own DJ Manu, known as Manuel during business hours, set us up with great Cajun and New Orleans jazz tunes so we had a great party atmosphere during the evening.
The event was well attended, lots of fun, and we plan to do it again next year. Thanks again to everyone who helped, donated, and came to enjoy the party!
