SAFFORD — The Gila Valley Ministerial Association is celebrating Mardi Gras, Creole style.

Fat Tuesday will be celebrated as a fund-raiser for Samaritan Home Tuesday, Feb. 13 at Manor 415.

There will also be a silent auction and a raffle for a rifle. Music will be presented by the band Desert Thunder.

Tickets are $50 and doors open at 6 p.m.

All proceeds benefit Samaritan Home, a respite and information center for the area’s homeless population.
