Mardi Gras is a series of events that supports The Campaign for Ursuline by raising funds for scholarships. Your gift to scholarships helps more girls realize their dream of attending Ursuline Academy of Dallas, where they will be equipped with the skills and confidence needed to do great things.

Thank you to all who joined us in person for the Mardi Gras 2023 Community Party on January 28 and the Patron Party on February 23!
