Despite cooler temps and a wicked north wind, FIRM’s Mardi Gras fundraiser was well attended, and party-goers did indeed let the good times roll!

We sold all but 8 of our 100 cupcakes with Julie Wallace winning the grand prize 4-night accommodations for 4 in New Orleans. Thank you to everyone who supported the fundraiser with your donations, the Waterfront Brewery for providing the spectacular venue, all of the local businesses who provided items for our silent auction, and Insurance Office of America (IOA) for sponsoring the cupcakes and Mardi Gras cake. We’ll just let the pictures tell the story.
