The Mardi Gras and All that Jazz celebration hosted by Mercy Health will take place on February 13, 2023, at 6 p.m., at the Carson Center in Paducah. The event aims to raise funds for the Mercy Health Foundation at Lourdes through various activities such as Cajun food and drinks from local restaurants, live music, and entertainment.
The evening promises to be a festive occasion with free masks and beads available for guests to celebrate Fat Tuesday style. Proceeds from the event will go towards improving and upgrading facilities and services 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.
Last year’s Mardi Gras and All that Jazz event raised more than $60,000, bringing the total amount raised since its inception in 2022 to over $1 million. Tickets are priced at $150 each and can be purchased by calling 270-415-3759 or visiting Mercy Health’s Facebook page for more information about the event.
