Celebrating Mardi Gras

The 10th Annual Voilà Mardi Gras Ball

The Voilà Foundation will present our premier annual fundraiser on Saturday, March 1, 2025. Our 10th Annual Voila Mardi Gras Ball will feature a dinner buffet with a New Orleans flair and an open bar.  We'll enjoy live music for everyone's dancing pleasure, a dazzling charity auction powered by Handbid, and live cirque performers from our friends at The Off Centered Project.

“Laissez les bons temps rouler!”  


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.

Voilà A Salon

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.


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!
