A Mardi Gras event at the Sidney Pier Hotel last month raised an impressive $2,000 for the Sidney Lions Food Bank.

The party, which saw the Pier Hotel transformed into a Louisiana look-a-like on Jan. 19, featured fun activities like the Haro’s Casino, the VooDoo Lounge and Maw Maw’s Louisiana Kitchen. Net proceeds were donated to the food bank.

“We wanted to choose an organization that would benefit people right here in the community,” said Sidney Pier General Manager Natalie King.

Mardi Gras events continued at the hotel until Feb. 3.
