I love dessert and dressing up so I was really looking forward to the 'Mardi Party' that Cancer Pathways Midwest planned for Fat Tuesday (March 1, 2022). Instead of looking for a cool masquerade mask, I will now be looking for an ugly Christmas sweater, and I have around eight months to get ready.

The Fat Tuesday Marti Party fundraiser for Cancer Pathways Midwest has been postponed until December, and will now have an Ugly Sweater theme. This is all because of Evansville and the Tri-State's high COVID-19 numbers.

From Cancer Pathways Midwest:

It's always something! With crazy covid numbers staying high, we are turning our Mardi Party into an Ugly Sweater Extravaganza on December 1st! Join us for a night of ugly sweaters (with a prize for the ugliest sweater), a decadent dessert auction, and plenty of laughs. You have plenty of time to find the UGLIEST sweater- start hunting, and save the date!

Executive Director, Melanie Atwood says this is the second time they have attempted an in-person fundraiser since the pandemic began. The Mari Parti was a revision of their Good, Bad, & Ugly Dinner & Dessert Auction that is usually held in December.

New Event Details:

Get ready to drink, eat, and be ugly! Join us for our Ugly Sweater Dinner & Dessert auction. Buy a ticket or a table and get ready to bid on some seriously decadent desserts. Ugly Christmas sweaters look better when we wear them together.
