Mardi Gras Just Around The Corner


The halls have been “un-decked” and the New Year has been rung in, but that doesn’t mean the party has to stop! The 3rd annual Mardi Gras at the Capitol is a great way to give hope in 2018 and have a good time doing it.

 On Friday, February 2, the masks will come out for a night of celebrating hope and you are invited. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and dinner is served at 7:00 p.m. There will be a delicious New Orleans inspired menu brought to you by the talented Ed Riley of Mo’Cara and Two Fat Men Catering. 

After dinner, there will be a live auction and then we’ll dance the night away to live music performed by Four  On The  Floor. There will also be a photo booth, silent auction and cash bar available throughout the evening. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram accounts for more details about auction items.

General admission tickets are available for $50 each and can be purchased at the Sherry’s Run office during regular office hours (Tuesday -Thursday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.) as well as G.G.’s Jewelry and Gifts, Two Fat Men Catering and Mo’Cara restaurant.  

A few table sponsorships are still available. These guests will have VIP seating, a special menu, and a cocktail hour beginning at 5:30 p.m. For more information or to reserve a table, call 615-449-2088 or 615-925-2592.

Faith, courage, optimism and a desire to help others were qualities that defined Sharon “Sherry” Patterson Whitaker. Both before and after the energetic wife and mother was diagnosed with colon cancer, the impression she made on her family, friends and community was undeniable. While her battle in the flesh was lost in 2004, the spirit she had shown throughout life continues to touch more lives every day. Because of Sherry’s Run, a 5K run/walk benefit organized in Sherry’s memory, area cancer victims and their families can make strides toward becoming cancer survivors, and researchers are a small step closer to stopping the disease for good.
