The Second Annual Blush Ball, Mardi Gras kickoff celebration with the Pussyfooters Marching club and service organization was an event not to be missed!  Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World (Westbank) was the perfect location for a Mardi Gras Party. The featured artists were Big Sam’s Funky Nation, DJ Soul Sister, the Mardi Gras Indians, the 610 Stompers, and the Pussyfooters.

This was a party with a purpose-  a portion of proceeds went to support the Metropolitan Center for Women and Children. Visit for more info. Metro provides victims of abuse with a crisis line, counseling and legal advocacy, and shelter services throughout the Greater New Orleans area.
