5th Annual Mardi Gras Ball to occur in new SUB
ballroom Feb. 15
The ULM Student Government Association will be hosting the 5th Annual Mardi Gras Ball Thursday, Feb. 15 in the new Student Union Building ballroom.
Tickets for ULM students with ID are available in the Student Center on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets are $5 for students’ guests. They are free for faculty and staff and $10 for faculty/staff's guests. This year's ball will feature a royal court, complete with king and a queen.
The ball will be a formal, masked event. Men are required to wear a tux/suit and tie and ladies need formal evening wear apparel. Everyone needs a mask, and students are encouraged to be artistic and creative. The SGA will hand out simple black masks at the door.
Entertainment includes ULM's Jazz Ensemble from 7:30 9 p.m. Hors d'oeuvres will be served, and the focus will be on faculty, staff and court revelry.
All guests are encouraged to see the court and royalty presentation at 9 p.m., including ULM's dance team, the Warbonnets. A standing buffet will be served following the presentation. Radio DJ T-Lay from "100.1 Da Beat" will oversee the music until 1 a.m. A cash bar will be provided.
