Mardi Gras Ball and Krewe Party coming up in February to raise money for My Friend’s House

The Mardi Gras Ball will be held at 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 9, at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs located at 700 Cool Springs Blvd, Franklin, TN 37067.

Mardi Gras Ball is a unique event that provides an opportunity to celebrate with those in the community who share the same vision and heart for the special at-risk youth served by My Friend’s House Family & Children’s services.

Every year, amazing couples are nominated for the Mardi Gras Ball Royal Court. With a unique voting system, nominees battle each other to see who can raise the most money.

The 2019 Mardi Gras Ball Royal Court nominees are: Adam Broslat and Nicole Sanchez, Jeff Dunn and Dana Patrick, Tony and Lorrie Graves, Justin and Tiffany Wilson.

“The Mardi Gras is a fun and exciting way for community members to give much-needed support to our organization,” My Friend’s House Executive Director Tina Edwards said. “In fact, nearly 25% of our annual budget comes from the Mardi Gras Ball and pre-event Krewe Party.”

The Ball will also include a four-course dinner and dancing with live music provided by Gary Jenkins & Thundering Hearts. Tickets for the event are $150 each or $1,250 for a table of ten. Sponsorships are available from $500 – $10,000.

Ball festivities include the pre-event Krewe Party, which will be at Drake’s in Thoroughbred Village Shopping Center, 553 Cool Springs Blvd, Franklin, TN 37067 on
Tuesday, February 5, 2018. Tickets are $20 per person and doors open at 6 p.m.

“The Krewe party is for supporters who can’t always drop $150 for a formal event ticket,” explains Tina Edwards, “What’s special about this event is that it helps raise
both awareness and money in a way that anyone can participate in.”

The Krewe party includes a silent auction and is a great way to meet the Mardi Gras Royal Court nominees, vote for your favorite couple and support My Friend’s House while enjoying a laid back, Fat Tuesday type atmosphere.

The Mardi Gras Ball has a reputation for being a highlight of the fundraising calendar because of the fun and exciting atmosphere. This year both the Mardi Gras Ball and pre-event Krewe Party will be held at new venues which will provide new experiences for everyone in attendance.
