CHARLOTTE – The 12th Annual Lupus Mardi Gras Gala brings New Orleans tradition to Charlotte.
Dr. Ginger Dickerson, along with brother Todd and father Don, created the Dickerson Family Trust in 2007 to support of the Lupus Foundation of America and to honor their sister, Amy Taylor, who was diagnosed with lupus at age 20. Lupus Mardi Gras Gala has raised more than $600,000 since then.
“This event has become the pinnacle Mardi Gras celebration in Charlotte while raising awareness and funds for lupus,” said Jenny Prince, President & CEO of the LFANC. “We are part of a national force devoted to solving the cruel mystery of lupus while providing care for those who suffer from its brutal impact.”
The event will be held 7 p.m. March 17 at Founders Hall, Bank of America Corporate Center at 100 N. Tryon St. It will benefit the Lupus Foundation of America, North Carolina Chapter.
The event will feature entertainment by Hot Sauce, Creole cuisine, luxury raffle, silent auction, photo booth, fortune teller, Mardi Gras Masquerade Contest and crowning of the Gala King & Queen.
Tickets cost $150 by Feb. 16 and $175 by March 9. Guests must be 21 years of age to attend.
