Ursuline Academy: Mardi Gras Ball 2017

It’s wheels up for scholarships at Ursuline's 2017 Mardi Gras Hangar Party.

The 27th annual celebration, held Saturday, February 25 at Million Air Dallas at Addison Airport, is the premier scholarship fundraising event for Ursuline Academy of Dallas.

Honorary Chairs of the 2017 Gala are Suzanne and David Holl; this year’s Mardi Gras Co-Chairs/Co-Pilots are Christine Cook, Michelle Rickman, and Mary Beth Weinberger.

Ursuline’s Mardi Gras Gala is the primary source of funding for financial need-based scholarships for young women in grades 9-12 who attend the Academy. For the 2016-2017 school year, Ursuline granted approximately $1,233,000 in financial assistance and merit awards to 218 students, 26% of this year’s enrollment.
