The Mardi Gras-themed event was sponsored by the Colleges Against Cancer Committee, and, according to event organizers, it proved to be a great success with more than 900 people in attendance throughout the night. In fact, it shattered the $45,000 goal set by those organizers.

Among the top donors were SUNY Plattsburgh’s Rugby Clubs, raising $2,070, and SUNY Plattsburgh’s Kickline, which contributed $1,675 to the cause.

“With events and performances all night, there was enough to keep me busy,” said one attendee.
