Horsham Township and the Greater Horsham Chamber of Commerce are partnering March 4 to offer “Mardi Gras Extravaganza,” an evening of music, food and fun designed to bring together all those with a stake in Horsham.
The event, to be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Manor House at Commonwealth, 300 Tournament Drive, Horsham will offer valet parking, food with a Cajun flair-including roasted chicken and chorizo jambalaya and bayou seafood cakes-a cash bar, zydeco music by “The Untouchables,” and raffle baskets.
GHCC President Jo-Anne Zapata said one of the chamber’s roles is to help businesses - and other segments of the greater Horsham community - connect. “Mardi Gras is a great opportunity to meet business owners, corporate executives, nonprofit administrators, state, county and township officials, and community leaders,” she said. “We’re inviting everyone to ‘mingle and munch’ and get to know each other. It will be a party no one will want to miss!”
Mardi Gras is being chaired by retired Horsham Police Chief Robert Ruxton and his wife, Mary Beth. “It’s a lot easier to take care of business when you have the right contacts,” said Ruxton. “We want people to know who’s making the decisions that affect their lives and businesses.”
Cost of the evening is $35.
