2011 OLD NORTH CHURCH MARDI GRAS GALA FUNDRAISER
by RONALD T. DOUCETTE
Christ Church in the City of Boston, known as, The Old North Church, successfully held a Mardi Gras Gala March 5th, 2011. More than 170 parishioners, friends, and North End residents enjoyed a special night of dinner and dancing to the Dixieland sounds of a Berklee School jazz band. New Orleans decorations and festive beads of purple, green and gold set the stage for wonderful carnivale masks.
The highlight of the evening was the success of a silent auction and raffle of door prizes. Proceeds from the evening will support Old North’s preservation and outreach programs.
