Mardi Gras Gala

hp-slideshow landing

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!

The auction is open Friday, February 14, through Saturday, February 22, at 10:00 p.m., and you will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of unique experiences and items. Even if you can’t attend the party, you can compete for items from any location. Previews of the Live auction items will also be available on February 14, and non-attendees are welcome to submit a proxy form for off-site bids to Kathie Kahn Wood '87 by Thursday, February 20. Register to bid. This event is near capacity. If you would like to purchase tickets, please contact Jada Stotts to check for availability.
