Our fellow chapter in Atlanta has been hosting their Mardi Gras Ball for 15 years and now attracts over 1,500 guests annually to their event.

Professionals who attend this event will come from all walks of life and are consumers of all types of goods and services. We encourage you to take a look at this unique opportunity to support our ‘party with a cause’ and grow with us over the coming years. The Association of St Augustine H.S.
