The fun-filled annual Mardi Gras Celebration, including a silent auction, will be on Tuesday, February 21, 2012, from 6-9 p.m. at The Falls Reception Hall at 5925 Adams Street.  Doors will open at 5:45 pm.  All proceeds from this event will be given away to non-traditional students attending two or four year programs.  Last year the ABWA Lincoln Chapter raised over four thousand dollars!  Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
