Mardi Gras at Ascension

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for Tuesday, March 5th, 6:00 pm, and plan to join us for a festive Mardi Gras meal and auction to support Ascension’s Bolivian and domestic missions. The cost is $15 per person. Child care will be available for children in Grade 5 and under, and pizza will be provided for a suggested donation of $5 per child. Email nursery16@knoxvilleascension.org to let the nursery know that you are planning to drop your child off that night. Purchase tickets at the table in the narthex before and after the 10:30 am service starting Sunday, February 3rd (cash or check), or look for the online ticket sales in your inbox. Tickets are available in the parish office during the week. You can also purchase tickets at the door the night of the event.

Mardi Gras is fast approaching, and along with it our annual Mardi Gras Fundraiser to support Ascension missions in Bolivia and beyond. Just as in years past, to make this year’s Mardi Gras a success, we’re looking for donations for our silent and live auction. You can help by considering the following types of donations:

  • Experiences (a special luncheon or dinner, a boat ride, a behind-the-scenes tour, tickets to sporting event, etc.)
  • Getaways (cabins, condos, vacation homes, etc.)
  • Themed Gift Baskets (such as Movie Night, UT Vols, a Pet Basket, etc.)
  • Art Work (pottery, photography, drawings, etc.)
  • Services (tutoring, pressure washing, lawn mowing, consulting , etc.)
  • Food/Wine/Liquor
  • Cash Donations

If you would like to donate any of these needed items or you have other ideas for donations, please contact janevridge@gmail.com. Donation forms can be obtained in the narthex or the office. Donations deadline: February 27.
