After three months of preparation, the Event and Promotions Management (EPM) students at the Centre for Arts and Technology Halifax Campus are just a day away from Pardi Gras. On September 23, 2011 Pardi Gras, a Mardi Gras themed event, will be held at Alderney Landing from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. This is the third and final event that the EPM class of 2010/2011 will organize as part of their educational experience.
Guests can expect to enjoy music from The Retrospect and DJ Pineo, dancing and Mardi Gras inspired confectionery. In addition, attendees are encouraged to don Mardi Gras attire, as there will be a prize awarded to the individual who has the best Mardi Gras costume. Pardi Gras tickets will be sold for $15.00 at the door the night of the event.
The EPM students directed the proceeds of their previous two events to a charitable organization and they have decided that Pardi Gras will be a fundraiser event as well. Proceeds from Pardi Gras will be donated to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
