Mardi Gras in the Mountains Rescheduled for April

Mardi Gras in the Mountains Rescheduled for April

[ January 08, 2021 ] Georgia Mountains Hospice, The Ellijay and Jasper Councils of the Knights of Columbus and The Rotary Club of Jasper, have decided to reschedule the 16th annual "Mardi Gras in the Mountains" until April 24, 2021. This will continue to be a Mardi Gras themed event, with the King and Queen nominees, "Banks and Shane" and as always, a wonderfully catered meal.

Many hours and much conversation went into this decision, but the participating partners agreed, this event must continue. Because of the COVID pandemic, many functions have been cancelled and many agencies are suffering because of this. "Mardi Gras in the Mountains" monies touch so many in this community, not only Georgia Mountains Hospice, but the many, many charities The Knights of Columbus and The Rotary Club of Jasper support.

Gina Pendley, Executive Director of Georgia Mountains Hospice asks, "I hope everyone continues to support this event as they have so generously in the past. Your participation in this event, whether it is through donations, ticket sales, or supporting your King and Queen, allows us to continue to offer quality end of life care to the families of north Georgia.?

Please save the date and look for upcoming announcements naming the new nominees for 2021. If you have any questions or how you can participate in "Mardi Gras in the Mountains" please contact Gina Pendley at 706-253-4100 or email

We look forward to seeing you there, and remember,

"Laissez les bons temps rouler"
