The Junior Service League Mardi Gras Gala is coming back better than ever.

After a two-year hiatus, this year’s gala will be held from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Centennial Building in Port St. Joe.

The charity event, which will raise funds for other JSL projects that include the Christmas clothing drive, Easter egg hunt, and mentoring programs, will boast live entertainment, live music and a silent auction.

“The Junior Service League is stronger than ever,” said event coordinator and president of the Mexico Beach Community Development CouncilKimberly Shoaf. “We have more members involved than ever before.”

Game tables will offer blackjack and roulette and a $5 donation will get players a stack of “fun money” to use at the tables.

Silent auction items will include fine jewelry, charter fishing trips, gift certificate trees featuring certificates from multiple area restaurants and much more.

Live music will be provided by Konkrete Soul and food, which is included in the ticket price, will be provided by the JSL.
