Girls Club Mardi Gras Ball history:
Since 2009, Two Boots Pizza, a longtime supporter of our health, wellness and culinary programs, hosted an annual Mardi Gras party to benefit The Lower Eastside Girls Club's free programming for girls. Each celebration was an unforgettable night filled with wild costumes, incredible performances, and the much-anticipated coronation of Mardi Gras King and Queen! This year, after a two year hiatus, the Angel Alliance junior board has decided to revive our annual Mardi Gras tradition.
