Don your beads and masks and join them for a lively afternoon of Mardi Gras fun, food and entertainment held at Grayhawk Golf Club’s Fairway House, 8620 E. Thompson Peak Parkway, Scottsdale.

A toe-tapping, arm-waving musical review of Mardi Gras entertainment will follow a memorable New Orleans lunch catered by renowned Grayhawk chefs. Get into the Mardi Gras spirit with lots of beads and beautiful masks or don your best Mardi Gras parade fashion. Whatever your garb, don’t miss the fun of Mardi Gras Masquerade & Madness!

A silent auction and lots of raffle prizes add to the afternoon’s excitement. The social hour begins at 10:30 a.m. with King Cakes, chicory coffee and Hurricanes. There will be plenty of Fat Tuesday atmosphere with fortune tellers, mimes and jesters entertaining while the Mardi Gras band is playing.

Tickets are $55, with proceeds benefitting student scholarships and area nonprofits such as Cave Creek Museum, Desert Foothills Library, Desert Foothills Land Trust, Foothills Caring Corps, Foothills Food Bank and Horses Help. This year’s fundraiser is being graciously sponsored by Bankers Trust, Sagewood, Wells Fargo Advisors Renae Watkins & Greg Holditch, Financial Advisors, and Wells Fargo Bank.

Desert Foothills Woman’s Club is exclusively charitable and educational, extending friendship to all women in the greater Desert Foothills area. DFWC has been in existence since 1960 meeting monthly for a luncheon and to hear a featured speaker of local interest. There are also groups that meet once a month for special interests such as journaling, painting, cards, bunco, movies, dinner groups and short day trips.
