We are grateful for you! Thank you for supporting LEAD's Mardi Gras Masquerade. Your attendance and participation made this magical night a success.

LEAD raised more than $350,000!


During the event, Semaj, one of our student LEADers, shared "LEAD has been one of the few constants in my life. It has given me the space to grow and flourish and has continued to stand as an example of what it takes to build a better community." The money raised will directly impact our youth and change their life trajectory. Thank you for making a difference.


Many thanks to our sponsors, supporters, volunteers, and in-kind donors. We appreciate the research and partnership of our honoree, Dr. Bradley H. Smith of the University of Houston. We are grateful for the time and talents of our amazing chair, Shenette Prevo. LEAD hosted a beautiful, fun, and festive event because of all of you. 


We look forward to seeing you next time… 


So many people donated their time, talents, and treasure to make Mardi Gras 2023 a success. We are grateful to our amazing Krewes.
