Mardi Gras Gala

Save the Date!

Saturday, March 2nd, 2019

6 pm to 11 pm

The Tangier, Akron

For the last 25+ years proceeds from our Mardi Gras Gala have directly impacted victims of crime and trauma in Summit County. The strong support of generous donors like you, allow our advocates to provide 24-hour crime scene response, crisis intervention and advocacy to 7,000 victims each year in our community.

On Saturday, March 2, 2019 over 400 guests will once again turn The Tangier in Akron into a night out on Bourbon Street. Guests will enjoy a gourmet meal, an open bar, live & silent auctions while helping us reach our fundraising goal of $150,000.
