NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - The Pussyfooters are more than just a Mardi Gras dance team.

When they aren't marching in Mardi Gras parades, the all-female group gives back to the community year round.

Their annual Blush Ball is their biggest fundraiser - and also their biggest party of the year - and it’s coming up this Friday, January 20, at Generations Hall.

Last year, the Pussyfooters raised $22,000 for the Metropolitan Center for Women and Children, and they hope to raise even more this year.

Tickets to Blush Ball 2017 start at $40.
