SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – It was a Mardi Gras themed fundraiser to support all the good work that the Shriners do for kids in the community.

The tastes, sights and sounds of New Orleans were brought to western Massachusetts for people to enjoy.

Tom Perrea from Pittsfield told 22News, “I support them because I have friends who’ve had children who have been helped by the Shriners. In many many cases. And they are just a great organization, and because of that, that is why we are here.”

Saturday Nights Mardi Gras party was also filled with traditional Bayou Blues music and dancing.

The Shriner’s next benefit event will be their pasta supper on February 27th.
