El MARDI GRAS
El Mardi Gras is a community event in Historic Tobin Hill and the first event for Third Coast Charities to jump start their mission of fostering community and building relationships between businesses and residents.
The first annual El Mardi Gras took place in February 2017 and was received with immediate success. 2017's event featured locally renowned Chefs: Pieter Sypesteyn of Cookhouse Restaurant and NOLA Brunch & Beignets, New Orleans Native John Russ (formerly of Luke), Jeff Balfour of Southerleigh, and John & Jessica Philpot of Hot Joy. Art was sold from local artists and residents jammed the day away with live music from Bad Banjo Brown and curated musical sounds by Steven Lee Moya.
El Mardi Gras, as a community event helps foster community and build relationships between residents and businesses. Funds raised at this event will go back directly into the neighborhoods we operate businesses in. The funds will provide education, financial relief, and physical assistance to neighbors in need; with workshops, fixing fences, painting houses, landscaping, trash pickup...
We all have to be socially responsible as businesses in the community and this event is a great opportunity for us to show our neighbors that we are invested in them!
