Special Kids Therapy Mardi Gras fundraiser @ Elks at Northridge
Feb 7 @ 6:00 pm
Special Kids Therapy in Findlay is hosting its third annual Mardi Gras-themed signature fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 7 at the Elks at Northridge. “SKT’s Mardi Gras cajun buffet dinner consists of voodoo child chicken breast, shrimp etoufee, red beans and rice, cajun mac and cheese, honey bourbon glazed baby carrots, creole green beans, biscuits, cornbread and king cakes. It’s without a doubt the best Cajun lineup in town,” SKT Executive Director Anne Spence said. “All of the money raised will support SKT’s mission to assist special needs children in the Findlay-Hancock County area. We believe that all children deserve to enjoy life and feel good about themselves.” Following the cajun buffet dinner, the event emcee, state Sen. Cliff Hite, will introduce an auction of New Orleans-style items, southern food mixes, local business donations, and other goodies. In accordance with southern tradition, they will finish off with a live auction of high-end items. The evening’s events will wind down with live jazz music and southern-inspired spirits. Tickets are $30 each or reserve a table of eight for $200. Tickets can be purchased at Special Kids Therapy, Rooney & Associates Real Estate, John Seng OD, or Findlay Elks at Northridge. Special Kids Therapy is a nonprofit that funds all programming through grants, donations, and fundraisers. It helps special health needs children with necessities and fun therapies that are not met by insurance, other charities and/or government agencies. SKT clients include children with moderate to severe physical, mental and/or emotional challenges.
