Mardi Gras Ball

On February 17, 2024, we celebrated the 42nd anniversary of My Friend’s House and the 20th anniversary of the Mardi Grad Ball. This year’s King and Queen are Larry Moscowitz and Courtney Hunter. Together with our other three court couples and board members, we had another record year and raised over $197,000 for My Friend's House. THANK YOU to everyone that attended, volunteered, purchased sponsorships, tickets, and/or digital ads, and donated. We could not have done it without you!

The Mardi Gras Ball is one of the premier events in Williamson County and My Friend's House signature fundraiser. Our court couples, board members, staff, and even the boys all work toward making Mardi Gras Ball an unforgettable experience for all that attend.

The evening commences with a lively, Mardi-Gras-like-parade entrance and includes top-notch entertainment, first-class cuisine, an informative program, the revealing of the MGB King and Queen, and culminates, of course, with dancing throughout the night.

Mardi Gras Ball is an event not to be missed with all proceeds benefiting My Friend's House. We truly hope you can attend this unforgettable event!
