Mardi Gras Gala

Our mission is simple. Each year we raise money for financial need-based student scholarships while fostering and celebrating community. Since its inception, the fundraising efforts of Mardi Gras have translated to over $23 million in tuition assistance for the students of Ursuline Academy. A story of success that will only continue to grow and offer young women the experience of an Ursuline education with the help of our community. So whether by attending, underwriting or volunteering, we invite you to join us!
