Mardi Gras Dinner and Silent Auction

February 6, 2015
Home of Mary Gay and Don Brady

A perennial favorite with our membership is our "Mardi Gras Covered Dish Dinner and Silent Auction" traditionally held in the private home of one of our Greensboro Branch members. The 2015 event was held on Friday, February 6th at the beautiful home of Mary Gay and Don Brady, our gracious hosts. It was a festive affair with many delicious dishes prepared by our members and a "King's Cake" for dessert. Revelers bid on silent auction items brought by branch members. Funds raised at this event help sponsor our BUSS Scholarships and our Shakespeare Competition.

Our 2014 Shakespeare Competition winner, Calliope George, was our guest for the evening and shared with us recollections of her trip to New York to participate in the ESU National Shakespeare Competition. At the requests of the partygoers, Calliope repeated the soliloquy she had chosen for the Competition. She graciously performed twice so that everyone in the overflow crowd could hear her. She was rewarded with standing ovations.
