Mercy Health is set to hold their annual Mardi Gras and All that Jazz celebration on February 13th at 6 p.m. at the Carson Center in Paducah. The event will raise funds for the Mercy Health Foundation at Lourdes through proceeds from Cajun food and drinks, live music, and several entertainers. Guests can also celebrate Fat Tuesday style with free masks and beads.
Since its inception in 2022, the event has raised over $1 million to fund improvements and upgrades of the facility and its services. 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 by calling 270-415-3759 or visiting Mercy Health’s Facebook page for more information about the event.
