Mardi Gras for HomeCare and Hospice!


Hello everyone, this is my very first blog so bare with me!

For the second year in a row, the Travel Club will be hosting a fundraising event for HomeCare and Hospice. The event will be held on February 16th at the Batavia Downs Casino. With the theme being Mardi Gras party, the event will be fun and exciting! This allows students mardi grasstudying Hospitality and Event Planning to gain experience and help out a wonderful cause. Although the Travel Club is hosting the event, we could always use volunteers to help out.

The tickets are $35, and it includes $15 dollars of Free Play at the casino, along with dinner and entertainment. There will also be a gift basket raffle and 50/50 raffle. The event starts at 6:00 p.m. and winners will be announced at the event. A few of the raffle items include:

  • 4 passes to Palm Island water park at the Clarion Hotel in Batavia
  • an overnight package to the Del Monte Lodge Hotel and Spa in Rochester
  • a jacuzzi suite with breakfast and dinner at Salvatore’s the Garden Place Hotel
