Puttin' On The Glitz

An Evening of Elegance for a Good Cause

Join the Best Party of the Mardi Gras Season!

The FRIDAY NIGHT BEFORE MARDI GRAS Ball celebrates the best traditions of New Orleans with costumes, cocktails and revelry. We come together in support of a variety of local LGBTQ organizations that do important work in our community, with a particular focus on those that serve people living with HIV/AIDS.  Throughout the year, we also host a variety of social gatherings to raise funds, build support and have fun. Our Sparkle Glitz Party, for example, raised more than $6,000 in just a few hours! Many thanks to all who attended.

The theme for our 2015 Ball is PUTTIN’ ON THE GLITZ.  It will be hosted at a brand new venue, The Cannery, bringing the Ball back to its roots in Mid-City. Join us on Friday, February 13 for a night of GLITZ you won’t soon forget.

Don’t forget you can also bid on fine art and other auction items at our Ball. This year’s auction features a print by renowned artist David Harouni, which is pictured below, among many other fine items. It all benefits the organizations we support!
