What’s better than enjoying yourself to the fullest while also helping someone else at the same time? Well, there’s a way to do that with the 2nd Annual Hood River Valley Adult Center Mardi Gras celebration, one of the best events on the Hood River activities calendar. The celebration is a fundraiser for the senior Meals on Wheels. All the proceeds earned from sales of tickets for this event will go to fund Meals on Wheels specifically for seniors.

You’ll enjoy good food, great music and libations along with a silent auction and raffle. Make sure to get your tickets early as this evening is quite popular. You must be 21 to attend.
