Cancer Crusaders Mardi Gras


Cancer Crusaders Bingo Bash


Mark your calendars! You won't want to miss the Cancer Crusaders Mardi Gras Bingo Bash, being held at Chateau Golf & Country Club, 3600 Chateau Blvd., Kenner, on Tuesday, February 6, 2024.

In addition to bingo, this fun and festive cancer research fundraiser features lunch, a cash bar, and higher-end raffles. And, of course, no Mardi Gras-themed event would be complete without a costume contest! SO, get your tickets right away and start planning your winning ensemble.

Bingo Bash tickets cost $60 each and are available online here beginning at 2 p.m. on December 5. But get yours early! They only have seating for 300 guests and this event sold out quickly last year.

Sponsorships are available for $1,000 each, providing the first 10 seats at a premium table.

Cancer Crusaders is a local non-profit, all volunteer organization that has been raising funds for cancer research in the New Orleans area since 1976. Believing fervidly in their motto – The Answer to Cancer is Research – this group hosts several fundraisers in addition to the Bingo Bash each year – the Cancer Crusaders Golf Tournament; the Seersucker & Sass Summer Gala; and their signature event, the Annual Celebration of Life Luncheon, which honors local cancer survivors who are making a difference in the community.

Since their founding, the organization has raised over $4.4 million, which has been split equally between the cancer research programs at Tulane and LSU.

Join them at the Bingo Bash – or any of their other amazing events – and help them to continue making a difference in the search for cures.
