St. Mary School annual Mardi Gras fundraiser will be held Saturday, Feb. 10, at Ready Randy's banquet facility, 1492 131st St., New Richmond. Grab your saddle shoes, poodle skirt, or that favorite leather jacket for a night of '50s fun. The night will feature a live auction offering a weeklong cabin getaway, a whole hog, or a pontoon rental, and more, as well as a dessert auction with the help of MC John Jarchow. There will also be a silent auction.

Other activities include a photo booth with dice, hoola hoops and all the fun attire that a '50s drive-in has to offer as well as music provided by Dave Deville Entertainment. R & D Catering will be serving a buffet featuring pot roast with beef gravy and mashed potatoes, fried chicken, and green Jello with pears, as well as a vegetarian or gluten-free option.

This event celebrates St. Mary School, which has been a part of the community since 1891 and is the only parochial school in New Richmond. The Mardi Gras serves as the school's largest fundraiser. The festivities begin at 5 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person, which includes dinner, games, music, and the live and silent auction. Save some cash for the casino by purchasing a full table of eight for $250 or join after dinner for some gaming, music and auctions for $10 per person.

Seating for the dinner is limited so reserve tickets today. Call St. Mary School at 715-246-2469 or email stmary@st-marysschool.com for more information.
