This year’s Carnivale is set to be “an evening of splendid frivolity and amusements.” Patrons in their best “flirtatious” black-tie attire will converge at Cox Business Center, ready for an exquisite night with dinner, dancing and authentic Cabaret performances. The annual event benefits the Mental Health Association Oklahoma’s efforts that “provide almost 850 units of safe and affordable housing, along with access to support groups, advocacy, treatment, legal counseling and other community supports” to those affected by mental illness. Carnivale, conceptualization by Suzanne Warren, and its inaugural party in 1990, at the time called Le Masquerade, helped open the Mental Health Association Oklahoma’s first housing program. Since, whether called Le Masquerade or Carnivale, it has made countless strides that support the association and those with mental illnesses. This year’s event co-chairs are Patricia Chernicky and Cheena Pazzo. Honorary Chairs are Becky and Barry Switzer. Join them, Suzanne Warren, other committee members and sponsors for an incredible night that works to change lives, on Saturday, March 28, at 6:30 p.m. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
