2020 Mardi Gras Ball
About the Mardi Gras Ball
The Association of St. Augustine Alumni – DFW Chapter’s Annual Mardi Gras Ball is a premier fundraising gala and major social event focusing on raising awareness and support for our alma mater’s 69-year mission of educating and molding deserving young black men in the city of New Orleans to become leaders equipped to improve the world. This exclusive, “must-attend” event is designed to be one of DFW’s finest evenings of fun, good food, glitz and glamour that will have attendees feeling like they are in New Orleans enjoying the pageantry of Mardi Gras.
Based on New Orleans traditions, the BALL is known for its food and music including Carnival Indians and a Brass Band. For our inaugural event, we are honored to have Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Mr. Dean Baquet to serve as our Grand Marshall. Mr. Baquet is the executive editor of the New York Times and is also a proud 1974 graduate of St. Augustine High School.
The annual Mardi Gras Ball is the DFW Chapter’s largest and most significant event each year. The event targets local DFW professionals, corporations, small businesses and other community-based organizations. For five (5) hours attendees will experience the flare of New Orleans hospitality, music, food and fun. When complete, everyone will have learned a little bit about the cause of helping St. Aug to continue its mission and how their support improves the lives of students and their families.
When: January 11, 2020 - 7:00 PM – 12:00 AM
