From Rotary Club of Reno:

The Mardi Gras party everyone will be talking about will be on Fat Tuesday, March 4th, inside the Reno Ballroom located at 401 N. Center Street. Doors open at 6pm. Reno Mardi Gras is an annual event hosted by the Rotary Club of Reno.

At this year's event guests will enjoy the festive traditions of the night including dancing and indulging in rich food and drink as well as dressing in their finest Mardi Gras attire. Some will even have the traditional beads, costumes, and masks. 

The Reno Ballroom will be transformed into a vibrant locale. The ballroom will become a sea of the traditional Mardi Gras colors of green, gold and purple. The green represents faith, gold represents power, and purple represents justice.

This year we celebrate the 22nd annual event with the biggest celebration yet. Local restaurants including Men Wielding Fire, Gas Lamp, PF Chang, Ruby River Steak House, Reef's Sushi & Saki, the Brewer's Cabinet, Silver Peak Brewery & Restaurant, Indian Kabab & Curry, Scampi and the Sierra Job Corps to name just a few, will prepare treats for the attendees to sample and nearly 2 dozen wineries, pouring over 80 types of wine, will be represented at the party. Harrah's, the Silver Legacy & El Dorado will, once again, bring their gorgeous booth displays and exquisite food samplings to the Mardi Gras celebration.

In addition to great food, great wine and a great cause, there will also be an auction featuring specialty wine, art work, spa packages, golf packages, weekend getaways to Graeagle and Tahoe and more. Auction items have been donated by Rotary Club of Reno members, local businesses and business leaders. The Nevada Mining Association is donating a Surface & Underground Mine Tour for 12 people, with dinner and hotel for one night!

Funds raised through Rotary Club of Reno events are directed toward local community programs that help to improve quality of life, as well as educate and train local youth.
