Fun for a Cause: Mardi Gras Dinner & Dance


The first few months of the year in Three Rivers are always a little sleepy. We’re snug in our little winter dens, recovering from too much food and family during the holidays. Springtime in our quiet little town is notoriously festive, with ropings, music festivals, and art fairs, but everyone seems to hibernate until April up in these foothills.

Unless, of course, you’re one of the hardworking volunteers in the plethora of charity and community service organizations in town who never seem to sleep. When I’m not making soaps, I’m working with the Three Rivers Emergency Aid Alliance, a 501(c)(3) charity that provides cash aid and hardship assistance to locals in need.

So if you want to kick start the spring party season and help your neighbor at the same time, the EAA is hosting their second annual Mardi Gras Dinner and Dance event on February 10. This year will feature the lively marriage of western swing and early jazz in the smooth sound of The Vivants from San Francisco, and serve a sumptuous dinner of Louisiana-style shrimp boil with salad, dirty rice, and dessert. Beer, wine, and specialty cocktails will be served from The Swamp Bar, and obviously costumes are encouraged – you’ll even get a free mask and beads!

General Admission tickets are only $15. Dinner and dance tickets are $40, or $75 when you buy two. The festivities go from 6pm to 10pm at the Three Rivers Memorial Building. The good company of the EAA crew and volunteers is an added bonus. 

Call 559.280.7297 for tickets or visit Dave and Carol at the ever-friendly Three Rivers Hideaway You can also get tickets when visit us at the shop at Ja Nene Natural Body Products. We’ll see you there!

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Emergency Aid Alliance. The EAA was revamped in 2012 according to the longstanding tradition in Three Rivers of locals helping locals suffering health, financial, and disaster hardships.
