The fifth annual Buffalo Chamber of Commerce Winter Gathering will be this Saturday at the Deerfield Building downtown.
This year's theme is “Mardi Gras,” and those attending are encouraged to come in their best Mardi Gras Ball attire.
Angela Jarvis and Rachel MacCaughey with the Chamber explain more.
The Winter Gathering is the main fundraiser for the chamber, funding many of their events throughout the year.
The Winter Gathering will offer Cajun cuisine this year, celebrating the Mardi Gras theme, and the evening will feature a five-course wine pairing.
Mardi Gras masks, beads and other trinkets will be provided and many prizes will be given away at the event with the top prize being a trip for two to New Orleans to experience the city and all it has to offer firsthand.
Tickets are just $90 per person or $160 per couple for the fundraiser dinner. They are available at the Chamber of Commerce but are going fast.
