Welcome to Noche de Fiesta Mardi Gras 2014

Mardi Gras 2014, “Noche de Fiesta,” was an outstanding success with more than 700 supporters attending and record-breaking results for scholarships. Special thanks to our generous donors and the more than 100 volunteers who made the event possible. And congratulations to Edward Tauriac, parent of twin juniors, who won the gift card/tuition raffle. View photo album.

Welcome to the 24th Annual Ursuline Academy of Dallas Mardi Gras Gala. The mission of Mardi Gras is to raise funds for student scholarships and to foster and celebrate a sense of community. Through the 23 years of Mardi Gras, more than $20 million has been awarded to young women who otherwise would not have been able to receive an Ursuline education. Whether by donating, attending, underwriting, or volunteering, we invite you to join us!

  “I have imagined coming to Ursuline since fourth grade when several students visited my school. As a young child, I admired the intelligent, mature students and set a goal to become an Ursuline girl. Then my mom began having serious health issues that were costly to treat. We weren’t sure if our family could afford Ursuline’s tuition. By providing the funding for my scholarship, my worries about finances have diminished, and I can place learning as my top priority.”
