      Mardi Gras Memphis 2012

      Mardi Gras Memphis 2012 is the Mid-south's inaugural masquerade ball to benefit the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Greater Memphis. This enchanting cultural celebration set in the beautiful Mud Island River Terrace promises to provide all of the elements of a New Orleans Mardi Gras ball.

      Guests will enjoy a wide selection of complimentary heavy hors d'oeurvres, traditional king cake, a silent auction, and cash bar. Live entertainment (both Cajun and dance) will keep the party going until the midnight champagne toast and crowning of the 2012 Mardi Gras King and Queen.

      There will be plenty of surprises from beginning to end and this surely won't be an event you will soon forget. What a great way to raise money for Big Brothers/Big Sisters!
