    Check in at the Registration Table beginning at 5:15 p.m.

    You will receive your nametags, bid number and auction catalog and addendum at that time.

    For your convenience, please remember to have some cash on hand to take part in our Iced
    Martini Luge, Hurricane or other beverages and exciting games throughout the evening. Heads
    or Tails necklaces may be purchased for $10.00. Chances for the Mardi Gras Safe Sparklers
    Game may also be purchased for $20.00. Take part in the Best of the Live Raffle and choose
    your Live Auction prize for a $20.00 ticket.

    Check out the new Giving Tree and help fulfill the parish and school need items. See page 7 of
    the catalog for all the details.

    All ‘tips’ from the bars and coat check this evening are being donated to the ‘Teen Mission
    Trip,’ to help defray the cost of the trip for the teens. Many of the teens that are signed up for
    the trip are working tonight, checking coats or selling necklaces.

    An invoice of your silent and live auction winnings will be delivered to your table immediately
    following the Live Auction.

    Upon completion of the evening, your invoice should be taken to the “Check-Out” room
    (Archbishop Romero Room), where you can pay for your items.

    Payments may be made by cash, check, or credit card.

    After receiving your receipt, you may pick up your auction items at the registration tables.




                         Please bring this catalog with you
                         the evening of February 18, 2012.

Dear Friend,

Welcome to Mardi Gras 2012! Tonight promises to be a gala affair! It is one of our last chances to
whoop it up before beginning the discipline of Lent. The room is festively decorated for you. There
will be lively entertainment and fine food. Wine and other adult beverages are available, and as
Scripture says, when taken freely at the proper time, they bring joy to the heart, and good cheer and
merriment (Sir 31:28). Grab ahold of this opportunity to visit with family and friends, and enjoy the
music and dancing. Plan to have a great time!

Thank you for coming to Mardi Gras tonight. And a special thank you for all that you are doing to
strengthen the fabric of the St. Stephen’s faith community and support the many ministries of the
parish.

Two of the featured events this evening will be the silent and live auctions. This is all possible because
of the exceptional generosity of the many donors who have shared a wide array of valuable goods and
services. Thank you to all who contributed something for the auctions.

Now, I invite you to take advantage of this golden opportunity. Please, look over the displays. Maybe
there is something there that you will eventually need. Maybe you would like to treat yourself with
something a little extra. Please, make some bids. It’s fun and exciting. Who knows what you will
take home? And you will be supporting a great cause in the process!

I would also like to extend my deep and sincere gratitude to all those on the Mardi Gras Committee
who have planned so well and worked so hard to make this night possible. And, of course, we are all
indebted to the many volunteers who have given so freely of themselves to insure that we would have a
fantastic evening together tonight!

Good cheer and God bless!




Fr. Michael A. Van Sloun
Pastor

                         MARDI GRAS GIVING TREE –
                    A.K.A. THE LIVE AUCTION NEED ITEM!
Introducing THE GIVING TREE - an opportunity to give to the Church and School Need Items
throughout the night! It is still important to have your help in filling these needs. By pooling all our
donations we can fill some of the larger specific needs for the parish and the school. In the past the
attendees of Mardi Gras have given through a Need Item Live Auction. Many needs have been fulfilled in
previous years thanks to the generosity of parishioners and guests. A list of those items may be found at
the bottom of this page.

Instead of raising your hand to bid you can raise your hand and choose a mask off our giving tree
with a designated amount and what item you would like to “buy” with your donation. Purple Masks
will be a $25.00 donation. Green Masks will be a $50.00 donation. Gold Masks will be a $100.00
donation. There will be a few Feather Masks for $500.00 and $1000.00 if the mood strikes you. Each
mask will have an attached card, add your bid number and place in the container. If you would like to
donate a different amount (larger or smaller) towards an item, we would be very grateful for your help, and
there will be some cards where you can fill out the amount.

The cards that are turned in will be added to your invoice. If you are busy bidding and enjoying the evening
and forget to turn in your card, you can bring it with your invoice and it can be added on to your total when
you pay. The need item is a great way to donate during the night if you did not win the bid on an item you
were trying for or you did not find the one thing you were looking for.

This Year’s Parish Need Items: LCD Projector for the St. Paul Room, Panini Maker, Small Refrigerator
and Wall Bookcase for The Refuge. $2,000.00 plus.
This Year’s School Need Item: New Furniture for the Welcome Lounge across from the Gymnasium.
$5,000.00 plus.

We look forward to being able to help fill these needs this year. Thank you for your continued support! We
hope you enjoy this year’s GIVING TREE!

                                      A Special Welcome to You!!

     It is with great joy that the 2012 Mardi Gras Committee welcomes you to our 13th annual Mardi
     Gras celebration!! This is the Year of the Masque and we planned a special evening with each of
     you in mind. We hope that this night is full of great fun, many laughs, and wonderful fellowship.

     We would also like to extend a special thank you, in advance, to each and every one of you for
     helping to make our annual Mardi Gras celebration so successful. We hope that you find many
     items that you ‘just have to have’ tonight, and that your bids are made from your heart.

     This year you may participate in the parish and school need items by purchasing a mask from our
     Giving Tree. We hope you will enjoy this fun way to fulfill wishes!

     Each year, Mardi Gras is supported by many generous donors from the parish, the school, and
     the community around us. It is from this wonderful generosity that we are able to provide
     support to the parish, the school, and the many programs that are supported by the parish. And,
     we sincerely thank you!!

     Mardi Gras takes many months of planning and numerous hours of work behind the scenes
     before the actual event. I would like to thank these special committee members for their
     unending dedication to Mardi Gras 2012. If I missed someone by name, it was inadvertent, and
     does not go without appreciation.

     This evening happens because of you…Thank YOU!

The Mardi Gras Committee would also like to thank the parish staff for the special attention that they
have provided to Mardi Gras and to the committee members. Without your creative energy and
boundless support, Mardi Gras would not be as successful in its endeavors. Thank you to each and
every one of you for being there for us.
