Mardi Gras Party
Tue, Feb 13 at 7pm
Presented by Hotel Vermont and Young Tradition Vermont with sponsorship from The University of Vermont Children's Hospital and Alchemist Beer, Hotel Vermont does Mardi Gras ON Fat Tuesday. The party will feature live music by Honky Tonk Tuesday's PonyHustle and local Cajun music connoisseurs Yankee Chank. There will be gumbo, beignets, $5 Focal Bangers from Alchemist, and lots of dancing!
The event benefits the Tom Sustic Fund, established to support a bone marrow transplant, generated through a series of benefit events in 1999 and 2000 featuring a wide variety of well known performers. Despite much effort, an ideal donor was not located. After Tom’s death in 2001, the funds were re-purposed as on-going support for families with children with life-altering conditions at UVM Medical Center and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Special guests will speak about the importance of the Tom Sustic Fund to families with children receiving treatment and information about sponsoring organizations.
