The 9th Annual Voilà Mardi Gras Ball
The Voilà Foundation will present our premier annual fundraiser on Saturday, February 3, 2024! Our 9th Annual Voilà Mardi "Paws" Ball will feature a dinner buffet with a New Orleans flair and an open bar. We'll enjoy live music from our favorite musicians, RECKLESS, for everyone's dancing pleasure, a dazzling charity auction powered by Handbid, and live cirque performers from our friends at The Off Centered Project!
All proceeds will benefit Canine Assistants - an organization with the mission to educate dogs and the people who need them so they may improve the lives of one another. They believe that dogs who are asked to improve the lives of people deserve to be treated with the utmost respect and kindness. They want the relationships facilitated between people and their working dogs to serve as the model for all relationships between dogs and people.
Like the 8 Mardi Gras Balls before, come and ...
“Assis! Reste! Et laissez les bons temps rouler!”
(Sit! Stay! Let the good times roll!)
ORIGINS of VOILÀ MARDI GRAS BALL
Mardi Gras, literally Fat Tuesday, has grown in popularity in recent years as a raucous event. But its roots lie in the Christian calendar as the “last hurrah” before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.
The origins of the Voilà Mardi Gras Ball are simpler to trace. From the beginning, Voilà A Salon in historic Roswell began giving back to the community. Starting with small Cut-A-Thons at the salon benefiting an individual in need, then steadily growing each year into elaborate events at local venues that raised thousands of dollars.
In the summer of 2015, the salon formed the Krewe of Voilà and created Roswell’s Inaugural Mardi Gras Ball. On the heels of that success, a new organization was formed - The Voilà Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Georgia Charitable Corporation. And with this nonprofit status, the Voilà Mardi Gras Ball became an annual tradition benefiting worthy causes in our community.
CARING with STYLE
Some of the most glittering spectacles of Mardi Gras happen behind closed doors at grand balls thrown by Krewes for their members and lucky guests. While most balls are invitation-only, our Mardi Gras Ball welcomes one and all and we give the proceeds to one charitable cause!
