ARCADIA, Calif. - More than 900 guests attended the 22nd annual Methodist
Hospital Foundation Mardi Gras celebration on Feb. 28 at Sirona’s
in Santa Anita Park, which raised more than $175,000 for breast health
care and digital mammography services at the hospital.
Mardi Gras served 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 featured dancing to
the ’80z All-Stars live band, and the traditional Mardi Gras parade
led by the Arcadia High School pep band.
Key event supporters include top sponsor Congress Orthopaedic Associates,
as well as “Carnivale” sponsors including Davita Healthcare
Partners; Dr. Robert Siew and Mark Hafeman; WIN Group; and Whittier Trust.
Mardi Gras also honored and crowned cardiologist Stephen Soldo, MD, and
his wife Patty as “King and Queen of Mardi Gras 2017” for
their long-time dedication to Methodist Hospital. They have given generously
of their time and resources and the hospital is fortunate to be able to
acknowledge their many years of service to the community. Special thanks
to event co-chairs Mary Bigley, Erica Cornejo, Sherry Wang and the committee
members for all their hard work organizing the event.
