On Fat Tuesday, March 1, 2022, Mercedes Benz of Fort Mitchell presents the 31st Annual Mardi Gras for Homeless Children produced by the Northern Kentucky Association.  This culinary tasting experience is a fun-filled evening with an abundance of food and beverages from local restaurants and beverage purveyors.  Also included in this high-energy night is live entertainment, featuring Tickled Pink and the Beechwood High School Marching Band, plus fabulous live and silent auctions.  This year’s Mardi Gras features Sheila Gray of Local 12 as our Queen, Scott Sloan of 700WLW as our King and back by popular demand, Giovanni Bernard former Cincinnati Bengals running back as our Grand Marshall.

Mardi Gras for Homeless Children was created by NKRA in 1992 in response to the death of three local homeless children in an abandoned garage fire.  The annual event continues to raise money and increase awareness regarding the challenges faced by homeless children in your community.  The event’s proceeds benefit three local shelters: Bethany House Services, Cincinnati; Brighton Center’s Homeward Bound Shelter, Covington; and Welcome House of Northern Kentucky, Inc., Covington.

When you support Mardi Gras for Homeless Children, you invest in the future of our community.  All monies raised are used for yearly food budgets, and other basic needs of the children we serve.  Please consider purchasing a ticket, sponsoring the event and/or participating in the silent and live auctions! If you prefer to pay via check and paper, click here.
