NAMI of Erie County hosted a Fat Tuesday kickoff celebration on March 5th, 2019 for our Seventh Annual Golf Outing. The event took place at The Brewerie at Union Station and raised $575, an increase from the previous year!
The Mardi Gras themed event was complete with boas, feathered masks, beads, Dixieland jazz music, Cajun style cuisine, and guest bartending from NAMI’s Board of Directors. This fun filled night allowed guests to experience the rich culture associated with this New Orleans tradition, through all five senses.
In addition, this event allowed NAMI’S fabulous team members to spread awareness about the reality of mental illness. Proceeds raised from both events helps NAMI of Erie County to provide free educational services to families and individuals with mental health challenges.
We are thankful for the surrounding community in helping make both events a continuous success.
This year, our Seventh Annual Fabulous Golf Outing is scheduled for June 21, 2019 at Venango Valley Inn & Golf Course. Come out and enjoy lunch, a steak dinner, samplings from popular locations around Erie, $7,000 in raffle baskets, $3,000 in team prizes, and $22,000 in hole-in-one prizes.
