UNC celebrates Mardi Gras while raising money for Angel’s Attic

The Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel was transformed into New Orleans on February 17 as United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania celebrated their 12th Annual Mardi Gras Celebration. The event featured fortune tellers, entertainment by Doug Smith’s Dixieland All-Stars and plenty of gaming tables including a money wheel run by WNEP-TV’s Sharla McBride.

The event, presented by PNC Bank, Bank of America and Sanofi-Pasteur, benefited UNC’s emergency food and clothing bank. Angel’s Attic provides more than 20,000 individuals each year with clothing, food, household and personal hygiene items free of cost.

UNC would like to thank all the event sponsors, basket raffle/silent auction donation sponsors, volunteers and everyone who attended. To see a gallery of photos from the event, click here.
