Showgirls and party starters, provided by Maryland Live! Casio, greet guests upon arrival


Magicians, living statues, and mimes entertained about 350 guests during OBI’s 18th Annual Mardi Gras on Saturday, February 6th.

The fundraiser boasted New Orleans-inspired hors d'oeuvres, catered by Mutiny Pirate Bar & Grille in Glen Burnie, a silent auction with items ranging from sports memorabilia to weekend getaways, and live music, provided by The Oracle Band, which had party goers dancing the night away!

Maryland Live! Casino, the evening's presenting sponsor Maryland Live! Casino, provided showgirls and party starters, who greeted guests as they arrived and posed with them in the photo booth.  

Close to $55,000 was raised, which will benefit OBI's mission to provide work for adults with developmental disabilities.

Looking to support OBI? Spots are still open for the annual Golf Tournament on Monday, May 23rd, at Crofton Country Club. Foursomes are $500. For more information, visit
