Mardi Gras Gala

Saturday, March 3rd at the Tangier in Akron from 6 – 11PM

On Saturday, March 3, 2018 over 400 guests will once again turn The Tangier in Akron into a night out on Bourbon Street. Guests will enjoy a gourmet meal, open bar, live music, and bid on live and silent auction items to help us reach our fundraising goal of $115,000. For the last 25+ years our Mardi Gras Gala proceeds have directly impacted victims of crime and trauma in Summit County.

The strong community support of generous donors like you allows our highly trained advocates to provide 24-hour crime scene response, crisis intervention and court advocacy to over 6,000 victims every year.
