Here is what you missed at the ball...


It was held at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs

Mardi Gras Ball & Krewe Party jointly are our biggest fundraisers of the year

and we are grateful for all that attend, participate or contribute toward the event every year!

We hope you will spread the word and join us at the 2019 Mardi Gras Ball!




Enjoy a four-course dinner and dancing into the night at this year's Mardi Gras Ball! This special evening will be an opportunity to celebrate with those in our community who share the same vision and heart for the special youth we serve. All proceeds will go to My Friend’s House, and make it possible for our boys to have opportunities to improve their quality of life.


Mardi Gras Ball


Our Annual Mardi Gras Ball is always great fun and an exciting way to raise money for our organization.


If you want to play an even more pivotal roll, we are always looking for special people to participate on our Mardi Gras Royal Court, where you'd have a chance to become a King, Queen, Duke or Duchess for an evening.



Krewe Party

This exciting event in Franklin is the pre-party for the Mardi Gras Ball, "Basin Street Blues" event...which includes, a silent auction and chance to meet and support your favorite court couple. 





Royal Court

Our Royal Court Couples are the heartbeat of the ball. They are true royalty in our eyes!
