I attended this ball last year at Kern’s Mardi Gras World on the West Bank and it was a very fun time! DJ Soul Sister was the musical highlight of the evening, her set truly kicked butt all the way across the Mighty Mississippi! The event setting, Mardi Gras World, was perfect for the event with all the surreal paper mache sculptures surrounding all event attendees. I attended with my good friend Jack, who also had a ball!
For 2011, the Pussyfooter’s Blush Ball will be held at the Howlin’ Wolf, 907 South Peters Street, New Orleans on January 29, 9 pm to 2 am. The party features Big Sam’s Funky Nation, DJ Brice Nice, the 610 Stompers, the Pussyfooters, plus a Firehouse Cook Off by the Firefighters of New Orleans.
2011 is the 10th Anniversary of the Pussyfooters, and their goal is to do something special: Party with a Purpose to raise $10,000 for the Metropolitan Center for Women & Children.
They hope to sell 800 tickets to the event. Party attendees will also have a chance to win one of 60 raffle prizes. They have Mignon Faget jewelry, a Picasso print, hotel and dinner prizes, and spa gift certificates.
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 metrobatteredwomen.com 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.
