HULL — More than 200 guests attended The Hingham Education Foundation’s annual spring fundraiser, “Mardi Gras Madness,” which was held at the newly renovated Paragon Boardwalk in Hull on Friday, March 29, 2019.
Live music was provided by the local band Nectar, authentic New Orleans cuisine by Revelry and guests enjoyed a March Madness twist with a basketball shoot-off and skeeball competition in the arcade room.
For those of you wondering about the venue we found this: “Paragon Boardwalk is an iconic block of family-friendly fun on the boardwalk of Nantasket Beach. A celebration of the history, art, and amusements that make Nantasket a fascinating place. The Boardwalk is under new ownership and has exciting changes in store for spring and summer of 2019.”
The event helped to raise funds for HEF’s campaign to raise $180,000 in the 180 days of school supporting computer science immersion in the Hingham Public Schools. Co-chairs Cyndi Smith and Barbara Froio gave a special nod to Fidelity’s Hingham branch in the form of pralines dessert with their logo in thanks for their $10K donation to HEF.
