on the Park in Canton.
The event will feature a silent auction, wine-tasting, appetizers, desserts
and Mardi Gras-style music. Prizes will be awarded for the best costume,

thing to remember is that all proceeds will benefit the CASL Alumni Affiliate
scholarship fund," according to Anthony Allegrina, co-chair of the

many outstanding liberal arts students in financial need pay their tuition
bills, and the need is certainly greater now than it has been in years."

from CASL alumni and friends. The Mardi Gras Magic event is the group's
