Samaritans Midtown Mardi Gras at St. Bart's has become an annual event that no one wants to miss! Under the guidance of our Board President, Wes Puryear, it is a special evening of fun, good food, beautiful stilt walkers, magicians, a New Orleans jazz band, open bar and silent auction of art, travel, sports and entertainment packages that offers something for everyone. And it is all for a good cause, Samaritans Suicide Prevention Center, an organization that provides help and support to New Yorkers in distress. So join us and be part of the celebration!.
