33rd Annual Mardi Gras for homeless children combines fun with fundraising

Be sure to mark FAT TUESDAY, February 13, 2024, down on your calendar- you don’t want to miss the 33rd Annual Mardi Gras for Homeless Children presented by Mercedes-Benz of Fort Mitchell and the Wyler Family Foundation. 

Produced by the Northern Kentucky Restaurant Association (NKRA), this fun-filled evening includes great food and drinks provided by over 50 local restaurants and beverage purveyors, live and silent auctions, with live music by Tickled Pink and the Beechwood High School Marching Band!  

This year’s Mardi Gras court features Scott Sloan, of 700 WLW as King and Sheila Gray, of Local 12 News as Queen, and the evening features Tiffany Potter and JonJon Curl of KISS 107.1 as well as Sara Elyse of 102.7 WEBN as emcees. 

All proceeds from the 33rd Annual Mardi Gras for Homeless Children goes towards food purchases for Bethany House Services, Brighton Center’s Homeward Bound, and Welcome House, Inc. This event has raised over $2.56M in proceeds since its inception, and the money is a true gift to these agencies, giving them enough to stock their pantries for at least a full year. 

The all-inclusive tickets are available for $100/person providing admittance for the entire event from 6:30pm to 10:00pm. Tickets can be purchased at Mercedes-Benz of Fort Mitchell, all benefiting agencies, or www.mardigras2024.org.  VIP tickets are also available for $120/person, which allows early entry into the event at 5:30pm. 

Laissez les bon temps rouler!
