Mardi Gras serves gourmet foods from more than 30 of the San Gabriel Valley’s
most popular restaurants, as well as offering libations, a festive parade,
crazy costumes, dancing, live music, an exciting silent auction, and mysterious
raffle boxes all for a great cause. The event also features dancing to
the 80'z All-Stars live band, and the traditional Mardi Gras parade
led by the Arcadia High School pep band.
We are privileged to honor Dr. Dino Clarizio as “King Mardi Gras
2019” for his long-time dedication to Methodist Hospital. Special
thanks to this year’s event co-chairs Sophia Chan, Mark Hafeman
and Patty Soldo for their commitment.
