The annual Mardi Gras and All that Jazz celebration hosted by Mercy Health will take place on February 13th at 6 p.m. at the Carson Center in Paducah. This event aims to raise funds for the Mercy Health Foundation at Lourdes through various activities and entertainment options.
Guests can enjoy Cajun cuisine and drinks from local restaurants, live music, and several performers to get them dancing and marching. In addition, attendees will receive free masks and beads to celebrate Fat Tuesday style.
Proceeds from the event will go towards improving and upgrading the services offered at Mercy Health — Lourdes Hospital. Past proceeds have funded new pediatric rooms, an epilepsy monitoring unit, 3D breast cancer technology, and a pediatric intubation device for the hospital’s emergency room.
Individual tickets are $150 at the door or can be purchased in advance by calling 270-415-3759 or visiting Mercy Health’s Facebook page for more information about the event. Since its inception in 2022, the event has raised over $1 million for the Mercy Health Foundation at Lourdes.
