The Mystical Order of Aurora Mardi Gras organization is once again opening its Christmas party to the public to provide toys for children this holiday season. The Aurora’s “White Christmas in the Tropics” party will take place on Friday, December 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Perdido Beach Resort and tickets are still available. “This fun and beautiful party is a wonderful way to celebrate the season,” said Melinda Hughes, event chair. “Everyone brings a toy for our local children in need, which will be donated through the Christian Services Center, and we dress up in holiday cocktail attire and dance with Six Piece Suits, a fabulous dance group. We hope you will come celebrate with us! Ladies are encouraged to wear white, and the scene is set with beautiful seasonal decor. Gentlemen are not required to wear jackets or ties, but no shorts please. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.com.
