DEARBORN, MI – Friends of the Dearborn Symphony will kick-off Fat Tuesday with a Mardi Gras celebration, a Polkas and Paczki party on Friday, Feb. 28, from 6:30-11p.m. at the O’Kelley Banquet Hall in west Dearborn. Everyone is “Polish” when it comes to enjoying a Pacski – the famous jelly doughnut!
It promises to be a fun night enjoying a Polish dinner, beer and wine and lots of musical entertainment. Back by popular demand is keyboard player Joe Czapski and the Polish Dukes Band have been engaged for the evening. The popular Polish Alliance Dancers of Dearborn will steal the limelight.
The fund raiser, with all proceeds benefiting the Dearborn Symphony, marks the first 2014 event. Tickets for the party have been set at $49 each with $20 of each ticket tax deductible. The evening promises to be an exciting party to remember.
You may obtain tickets by writing to the Dearborn Symphony at PO Box 2063, Dearborn, Michigan — or visiting the Dearborn Symphony website. Tickets will also be available at the Patrick O’Kelley Knights of Columbus Hall, 23663 Park Street prior to the party.
Information is also available by phoning Party Chairwoman Margaret Schaefer at 313-565-2366. A Facebook event page provides additional details, however, all who plan on attending are encouraged to call Ms. Schaefer.
“The Mardi Gras, originating in New Orleans, has for years drawn a crowd on Bourbon Street” said Carla O’Neill, Friends of the Dearborn Symphony president. “Now we’ll have our own celebration before Lent. It could become an annual event.”
