MYB attends 66th Annual Mardi Gras Ball in Washington D.C.

Mardi Gras3Members of the Mind Your Business staff headed down to D.C. at the end of February for the 66th Annual Mardi Gras Ball, hosted by the Mystick Krewe of Louisianans. The group first began hosting these annual Mardi Gras celebrations as a means of bringing Louisiana’s heritage and culture to those who had moved from the Bayou State to the nation’s capitol. The MYB team had a blast at the black-or-white tie carnival ball. Director of Government Sales & Contracting Mary Ray, Vice President Jen Adams, VP of Business Development & Strategy Ben Wells and CEO Karen Caruso were present at the masquerade and costume ball. This year’s theme was “Louisiana’s Service to America,” and honored the Louisiana citizens’ commitment to the armed forces. Chaired by Congressman Dr. John Fleming, the annual carnival ball includes selecting a king and queen each year; this year’s royal court included King Dr. Larry M. Allen, and Queen Sarah Louise Bicknell, both residents of Shreveport, La. In addition to the Ball celebration, the weekend event included a Friday evening Captain’s Dinner Dance and presentation.
