Masquerading for Purpose, is a Mardi Gras inspired ball style evening setting that includes a sit-down dinner with live entertainment. There will be a parade with the famous second line dancing. It represents our Louisiana background while embracing our commitment to our Houston efforts. The event will also have a silent auction with prizes to raise funds. All proceeds from this event will go to efforts for our continued program M.A.P.P.S., G.R.E.A.T.S., and P.A.W.W. which aids and supports single parents, emerging adolescents, and their children. Our initiatives support a stimulating economy, promote healthy self-esteem, decrease homelessness, reduce teen pregnancy, increase leadership development, and educates on financial literacy and entrepreneurship. It also includes opportunity to increase awareness among the community. We are seeking to provide office space to house our programs that is one our own.
