Get ready to support a great cause and dance through the evening at our Mardi Gras Gala: Bourbon Street Fundraiser, held on Friday, March 8.
Throughout the night, dance to Ithaca’s premier Zydeco band Li'l Anne & Hot Cayenne, taste New Orleans-inspired food and desserts, sample bourbon from local distilleries, participate in our silent auction and capture the moment in our photo booth with fun props and decorations.
Fun and festive attire encouraged!
Take half a dozen groove masters, add a spicy blend of rock ‘n’ roll, blues, and funk to the up-tempo Zydeco beat, and presto, you’ve got a dance groove that just won’t quit! Taking the Northeast Zydeco scene by storm, Li’l Anne & Hot Cayenne have been invited to play a variety of prestigious venues including the Rhythm and Roots Festival in Charlestown, RI, The Great Connecticut Cajun/Zydeco Music & Arts Festival, and the renowned Saratoga Springs Dance Flurry.
