The Perham Lakes Lions will be hosting their 12th annual Mardi Gras fundraiser this Friday, Feb. 8.

Held at a new location this year, The Cactus, the event will include a social hour starting at 6 p.m., dinner of chicken, shrimp or steak at 7 p.m., prize giveaways, raffles and more.

Lakes Lion Pat Hendrickx said the main raffle prizes will be two half-hogs and three $200 cash prizes, but there will be many more. There will also be a silent auction, gift baskets and door prizes.

Costumes are appreciated, but not required.

"It's a lot of fun, Mardi Gras-style," said Hendrickx of the event.

Tickets are $25 and are available in advance from Lakes Lions members, or at the door. All proceeds go back into the community, for various charitable causes.
