Welcome to our Second Annual SixTwelve Mardi Gras Ball (and SixTwelve's first birthday party!) While we are young, we are hoping to plant the seeds for an event that will happen annually for years to come! One aspect of keeping to Mardi Gras tradition is the formation of "krewes" (pronounced "crew.")  Mardi Gras krewes not only create floats for parades or throwing parties, some even donate their proceeds to local community charities and causes. This year, thanks to the generosity of Ian and Hailey McDermid of The Pump, and Scott and Kandyce Mitchell of "Mitchell in the Morning," we are establishing the first two SixTwelve Mardi Gras Krewes, with the intent of starting more krewes in the next few years. These groups will not only help raise funding, but will also eventually help us to grow the event to the point of having a parade! 


If you love Ian, Hailey, Scott and Kandyce as much as we do, take a moment to vote for the King and Queen you'd like to see wearing the crown. Whoever raises the most funding will be crowned during the SixTwelve Mardi Gras ball on February 6th, 2016!
