EDWARDS – It’s time to don yellow, gold and purple for St. Clare of Assisi’s Mardi Gras party tonight at 5:30.Catered by Whirled Peas of Denver, the Chris Starkey Band will set the night to music, which will filled with food, wine, dancing and silent and live auctions to raise money for St, Clare of Assisi School and Vail Christian High School.”What makes this event so unique is it combines two schools. No other fund-raiser in the valley does that,” said Michelle Maloney, one of the event’s coordinators.Jeff Stokes with the Stokes Auction Group will entertain happy bidders with his quick tongue during the live auction and those who feel a little coy can quietly place their bid during the silent auction.”All the proceeds go toward the school’s budget. It helps keep down the price of tuition,” said Maloney.The event takes place at St. Clare’s in Edwards from 5:30-midnight. Tickets are still available.Vail, Colorado
