Preparations are underway for the Suffolk Center’s annual fundraiser!  This year we will host a magnificent Mardi Gras Gala which will benefit the Suffolk Center’s arts education programs for our community.  This Fat “Twos Day” will be held Saturday, February 22, 2020.  Yeah, that’s right 2.22.2020

Celebrity DJ WooWoo, from 94.9 The Point Radio, will be the MC for the evening, live music by Connected and Spare Change will keep the evening lively, and guests will enjoy delicious cuisine and libations throughout the evening.  A silent and live auction will offer opportunities to win original art, specialty gifts and amazing experiences to enjoy with friends.  Virginia Auction Company will provide an auctioneer for the event, and a list of the highly sought after auction items will be posted before the event!
