Fat Tuesday is a celebration of indulgences before the fasting of Lent, but it can also be an opportunity for the privileged to give back to those less fortunate.
Mercedes Benz of Fort Mitchell and the Northern Kentucky Restaurant Association are presenting the 28th-annual Mardi Gras for Homeless Children, complete with a parade.
Let the good times roll with over 50 food and beverage booths giving you a plethora of tasty morsels to try and vivacious cocktails to liven up the night, all for a worthy cause; the three charities the night benefits serve more than 40,000 needy individuals in the Greater Cincinnati area each year.
6:30 p.m. Tuesday. $70. Northern Kentucky Convention Center, 1 W. Rivercenter Blvd., Covington, facebook.com/mardigrasforhomelesschildren.
