Mardi Gras Ball

Thank you to everyone who helped us raise more than $65,700 for the students and teachers of Haywood County Schools at the 2017 Mardi Gras Ball. We can’t wait to see you next year!


How it works:

The male and female candidates who raise the most money throughout the month of February will be crowned king and queen of the Mardi Gras Ball. All money raised from the competition and at the Mardi Gras Ball is used for student scholarships, teacher recruitment and retention, and to fund grants for Haywood County teachers to purchase classroom supplies and attend training and workshops.

To purchase tickets, make a donation to a candidate’s fundraiser, or to make a donation to the Haywood County Schools Foundation, contact Haywood County Schools Foundation Executive Director Jenny Wood at or 828.456.2400 ext 2117. You can also make a donation to a candidate’s campaign online here (please designate candidate’s name in the notes section).
