2019 SKD Mardi Gras Ball

Over 160 parishioners and friends of St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Mission celebrated Mardi Gras in grand style at SKD’s 3rd annual Mardi Gras Ball, held March 2 at the Piedmont Club. The theme was “Black & White” to coordinate with their evening’s entertainment, Blazin’ Keys Dueling Pianos.
Piano players on two baby grand pianos played guests’ requests – unless another guest paid more for the players to stop the song or begin another one. By the end of the night, everyone was up from their seats, singing and dancing.
All proceeds from the evening, including the auction, raffles and tips to the pianists, were donated to the St. Katharine Drexel Building Fund. Photo courtesy of Joe Cashwell/Haymarket Joe Photography.
