You can dive into Mardi Gras at the New Bedford YMCA.

Saturday, March 3 from 7-11 p.m, join the fun at the New Bedford YMCA's annual Mardi Gras party to kick off their Financial Assistance Program Campaign.

For anyone 21-plus and looking to have fun, you can swing by the YMCA gymnasium where you'll be amazed by the fantastic decorations that will surely help you get into the Mardi Gras spirit. In addition to the fantastic decor, you'll be sure to have a good time with the help of the various things to do, such as cocktails, hors-d'oeuvres, dancing, raffles, door prizes, and more.

All proceeds from the raffle will be put into the financial assistance program to help provide those who cannot afford YMCA memberships.
