Behind the Mask
Behind the Mask is a celebration of Mardi Gras, held at the DelAvant Event Center in downtown LaGrange. The event benefits a number of our LaGrange programs. Over 280 of our closest friends come out to partake of the best of Mardi Gras. With a New Orleans style buffet served by C’Sons and a band that could have stepped right off Bourbon Street, our attendees simply don’t want to leave at the end of the evening. Our events coordinator can be heard saying “Now there, this is LaGrange. You have to go home by midnight, or we all turn into pumpkins!” The date for this year is January 27,2018. Our reigning King and Queen of Mask are Ralph Howard and Kelly Cain. This event is a sellout every year, so buy early!
Red Shoe Party - Chattahoochee CASA
On April 28 from 6-9 pm at the Loft Green Room, Chattahoochee CASA is proud to present “The Red Shoe Party,” a fundraising event themed around Dorothy’s ruby red slippers in the Wizard of Oz with the slogan, “There’s No Place like Home.” For the children in foster care in our community, this could not be more true. As they are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect, it is CASA’s mission to help them reach permanency in a safe, stable home as quickly as possible. This event is designed to be a party with a purpose helping to raise money and awareness for Chattahoochee CASA so that our community volunteers have the training and support to continue advocating for our most vulnerable citizens. Dust off your red shoes and join the party!
