History of Krewe de Cardinal

Do you know the history of Krewe de Cardinal? Originally, the event known as the “Silent Auction” took place in Foley Hall at St. Richard Church. This was a hugely popular party and brought in a good deal of money for our school. Plus, it was a fun night out for our parents!
Then, 9 years ago, a group of parents wanted to make the event bigger and better! Susan Steckler, Mende Alford, Ron & Lindsay Blaylock, and Rachel Dear put their heads together and created the amazing party and fundraiser we know today as Krewe de Cardinal! They changed more than the name. The event was moved to a larger location where we could invite more people because they knew that the involvement of the community was key to raising the maximum amount of money for our school. These volunteers also added the theme of “Mardi Gras” to the mix, and the rest is history! In Krewe’s first year alone, the fundraiser brought in 4X the profits and has since gotten community-wide attention as THE event to attend, Jackson’s Biggest Mardi Gras Ball!
Following in the footsteps of Krewe de Cardinal’s founding families, we are committed to offering the traditional event our patrons know and love while creating new and exciting ways to keep our guests happy and coming back every year!
