Carnival tune-up fundraisers


  A couple of parade marching clubs are holding fundraising parties that benefit local organizations. The Camel Toe Lady Steppers throw their country-themed Best Little Toe-Down in NOLA event at Tipitina's Friday. The party features the New Orleans Bingo! Show, the Roots of Music band, Fleur de Tease, Local Skank an the Mystic Ponies Aerial Troupe. The Camel Toes will perform as well. Proceeds benefit the group and Roots of Music, the music education program for area middle school students.

  The 610 Stompers hosts its Sweet 610 Debutante Ball, a 1980s-themed event that also benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The group will debut its 2012 dance routine, Band Camp will perform and DJ Hammer will spin tunes. Attendees are encouraged to wear their swankiest '80s glam-wear, and there is a prize for best dressed. — Will Coviello
