When you think of Mardi Gras you think of festive floats, spectacular entertainers, colorful costumes and limitless beads. It’s the biggest party of the year!  Beta Theta, ESA’s 13th Annual Mardi Gras Celebration lived up to those expectations.

The gala was a brilliant success, raising more than $15,500 which the members of Beta Theta will give back to the community in such forms as local high school scholarships and contributions to community projects and organizations.

The evening’s mood was set with the musical vibes of Windy HIll Middle School’s 40-piece jazz band.  Afterwards Ennis Pruitt and his sidekick Craig entertained the guests throughout the evening with a medley of pop, rock, classic and country.   After dinner, the guests were treated to a mini parade with mini decorative floats. The silent auction and door prizes sent many happy guests home with valued treasures.

Beta Theta, ESA has served the community for more than 38 years, during which time they have raised money, awareness and provided community service to the south Lake County.
