Compete for the Crown!

Each year we honor an outstanding community member as King or Queen of Mardi Gras. Last year, your efforts blew us away, and, for the first year ever, we awarded two Crowns…2021 King of Mardi Gras, Steve Wouch, and the first Prince of Mardi Gras, Josh Green. Together they raised over $25,000!!

This year, the honor is up for grabs again! If you are interested in joining Steve and Josh on the Mardi Gras Court and competing for the title of King or Queen 2022, register and start fundraising. The individual who raises the most money will claim the Crown and be recognized during the Virtual Gala!
