Mardi Gras 2021: Register to Bid & Item Donations

Celebrate the 2021 Mardi Gras Gala - The Stars at Night are Big and Bright - from the comfort of your home this year. Watch the program with your family and friends while bidding online on our Silent and "The Biggest & Brightest" Auction Items.

In these unique times, scholarship dollars are more critical than ever. The Mardi Gras Gala is an essential part of the annual effort to raise money in support of scholarships. Over the years, the event has funded over $25 million in financial assistance for Ursuline Academy students. While this year's event may look different than prior year's celebrations, with your help, we can make fundraising for scholarships in 2021 a huge success. Thank you in advance to our generous and supportive Ursuline community!

The virtual event will take place February 27, at 7:00 p.m. Visit the Mardi Gras website.
