Now on it's 15th year, Mardi de Montfort is St. Louis de Montfort's annual fundraising Dinner and Dance. The success of this evening is not solely a measure of funds raised, but also the coming together as a community to celebrate our relationships and blessings. The common goal to grow as a community is an integral part of Mardi de Montfort. The Fifteenth Annual Mardi de Montfort Dinner and Auction Gala, "Once Upon a Time", will take place on Saturday, February 25th, 2017. The event is a formal affair (black tie is optional) and will be held at its new location in the Marriott North at Keystone at the Crossing. 6:30 PM: Doors open at Marriott North - 3645 River Crossing Parkway, Indianapolis Silent auction continues. Champagne, cocktails & hors d'oeuvres are served. The evening will include a catered gourmet menu consisting of hors d'oeuvres, a complete dinner, dessert, and an open bar. There will be an exciting selection of silent and live auction items on which one may bid. Returning for 2016 is the use of Qtego Auction Technology for silent bidding. Live entertainment and dancing will top off the evening's festivities. Seating is $125 per person with 10 guests per table. Reserved tables with additional benefits are held for sponsor's tables only. Your reservations will be made online this year and you will be able to use a credit or debit card.
