The purpose of Mardi Gras can be more than just a fun party. For instance, the Immaculate Heart of Mary is taking advantage of Fat Tuesday to raise money for two upcoming programs.Some of the proceeds will toward the Little Brothers and Sisters Orphanage in Honduras while another portion will be used to help pilgrims attend World Youth Day, Cathy Kohlrust, event coordinator, said.The Mardi Gras festivities and fundraising efforts will take place during the Mardi Gras Family Carnival from 4-7 p.m. Saturday at the parish hall.There will be games, and a maze for kids, a live band, a silent auction and food. Kohlrust encourages people to attend “because it’s going to be a fun time.”“We actually had a few comments last year about how nice it was for the parents, because the set up for the carnival allows parents to sit in the middle and chat with friends,” she said. “Meanwhile, their children can wander around to all of the games without moving out of sight, except in the maze, of course. So parents get to relax. Children have a great time. There's good food, good music. What more can you ask?”Plus, the proceeds go to good causes.
