Continental Societies, Inc. Dallas Chapter
New Orleans Mardi Gras Gala
As an annual fundraiser, Continental Societies, Inc., Dallas Chapter has held the Mardi Gras event each year since 1993. It is always fun and exciting for our guests and members. It includes dining, dancing, mask judging and live and silent auctions.
Our mission is to create environments within our communities that empower children to have access to quality and appropriate opportunities to reach their optimal potential.
Continental Societies, Inc. is the quintessential volunteer organization that has built a foundation based on giving. The members are proud, dedicated and responsible. As partners with the Dallas Independent School District, the Boys and Girls Club, local recreation centers, along with several other national and local service organizations, Continentals have established a proven track record of trust and reliability. But it is through the support of our patrons and corporate sponsors that this organization is able to provide quality opportunities for children. Donations to the Continentals go directly to important basics like nutritious food, healthcare, education, scholarships and more.
The national organization, founded in June 1956 and incorporated nationally in 1972, Continental Societies, Inc. is a national public service organization dedicated to the socioeconomic and cultural welfare of underprivileged children and youth. Continental Societies Inc. embraces 46 chapters in 20 states in the Continental USA, District of Columbia and Bermuda and is continuing to grow. Through our Five-Point Programmatic Thrust: Health, Education, Employment, Recreation (HEER), plus Arts and Humanities, Continental women strive to adhere to the humanitarian precept of sharing with those in need.
