Janelle Duffy, left, and Monique Bekesi checked out the silent auction items up for bid at Riverside Foundation for Health Care’s “Mardi Gras” fundraiser Saturday evening at the Memorial Sports Centre. The event, which featured jazz music, gourmet food, and a New Orleans party atmosphere, drew a sold-out crowd of 200 people but how much was raised was not yet available as of press time today.
