ChiArti Gras

About ChiArti Gras

Organized by our Parent Support Organization (PSO), “ChiArti Gras” is ChiArts’ annual silent auction event. Welcoming parents, guardians, and community members, the Silent Auction encourages the spirit of giving in a fun, accessible environment. Guests are invited to contribute by bidding on silent auction items, purchasing raffle tickets, or contributing to a Mardi Gras “giving mask.” Showcasing a wide array of ChiArts talent, student performers are featured throughout the evening in a cabaret-style format.
